Denard Robinson Video: Watch Michigan Star's Ridiculous TD Run vs. Ohio State

Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson's college career may be winding down, but the excitement he generates is still very much alive.

Why? Because of plays like this one against Ohio State.

The Wolverines senior took a direct snap in the second quarter against the rival Buckeyes on Saturday and ran 67 yards to the end zone to put Michigan ahead 21-17 with under a minute to play. 

The play seemed doomed from the start, but then Robinson got a crease and a boost from two Ohio State defenders to run the last 50 yards comfortably and untouched to the end zone.

What makes the play so amazing, though, is the simultaneous tackle attempts he breaks at the 45-yard line. The two Buckeyes players bounce off of him like human pinballs. The play looked like something that would happen in an episode of the Three Stooges.

The two Ohio State players in question are Christian Bryant (No. 2) and Travis Howard (No. 7). Both players are defensive backs, and I see now why they aren't linebackers.

Of course, Robinson has a knack for making big plays with his legs, so it's not as if this was the first time he's embarrassed a pair of defenders. 

Still, the Buckeyes will be kicking themselves all offseason long if this play winds up costing them a 12-0 season. After all, the defense had Robinson right where it wanted him, but the poor fundamentals led to the awkward double-hit that ultimately increased Robinson's forward momentum. It was Robinson's seventh rushing touchdown of the 2012 season.

Robinson has rushed for over 1,000 yards now in each of his past three seasons with the Wolverines.
