The Michigan Wolverines squared off with the Nebraska Cornhuskers Saturday night with the Legends Division hanging in the balance. A Michigan win would all but secure the division title for the Wolverines, while a Nebraska win would put the Huskers firmly in the driver’s seat.
The Huskers claimed a 7-3 lead deep into a highly contested first half when the game changed in the blink of an eye. Scrambling in Nebraska’s red zone, Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson went down with an injury that would sideline him for the remainder of the game. Nebraska then seized control, stifled the Wolverine attack and cruised to a 23-9 victory.
Here are the winners and losers in the Big Red’s crucial win over Michigan Saturday night in Lincoln.
