Denard Robinson was supposed to be slowed by a bum knee. Clearly he didn’t get the memo. Robinson posted his usual 200 plus yards rushing and 200 plus yards passing. In the four and a half games he’s played in he’s delivered an endless reel of highlights.
On Saturday, Robinson added to that reel. On the second play from scrimmage he bolted 72 yards for a touchdown. He would add in two touchdown passes before the half but the game was all knotted at 21. In the second half it took just five seconds for Robinson to connect with teammate Junior Hemingway for a 70 yard touchdown pass.
The two teams would trade touchdowns until the final drive of the game. With the score tied at 35, Robinson through a 42-yard bomb to Hemingway, which brought the Wolverines to Indiana’s 4 yard line. On the next play, Robinson would dive into the end zone for the game winning score. The touchdown capped off a 73-yard drive and took only 52 seconds.
Robinson finished the game with three touchdowns through the air, two on the ground and a total of 495 yards. Oh and Michigan is still undefeated.
Right now Robinson has the Heisman in his back pocket and the trophy is his to lose.
Here is a list of the players chasing him up Heisman Mountain.
