Postgame Grades from the Wolverines' Win over the Falcons

Denard Robinson turned in a "Shoelace-esque" performance Saturday against Air Force

Give credit where credit is due: The Air Force Falcons made Saturday's game against the 19th-ranked Michigan Wolverines much closer than most anticipated.

Predicting a lopsided score in Michigan's (1-1) favor was logical. I wrote that Michigan would win 38-17, but instead it hung on for a 31-25 victory over the visiting Falcons (1-1) at The Big House in Ann Arbor.

Wolverines quarterback Denard Robinson turned in a "Shoelace-esque" performance, rushing and throwing for over 200 yards for just the third time in his star-studded collegiate career.

Freshman tight end Devin Funchess became the second Wolverines "receiver" to emerge as a target for Robinson, hauling in a 30-yard touchdown in the first half and making a juggling 19-yard catch in the second half.

Falcons running back Cody Getz rushed for 130 yards and three touchdowns. His pinball-like tactics made it difficult for Wolverines defenders to bring him down and hold him at bay for most of the game.

How did the rest of the Wolverines perform in their scare against the Falcons?
