Robinson repeats as Walter Camp Player of the Week
Michigan sophomore quarterback Denard Robinson has been named the Walter Camp Football Foundation National Offensive Player of the Week for the second straight week. Robinson notched 502 yards of total offense in the Wolverines' 28-24 victory at Notre Dame Sept. 11.
Robinson led the game-winning 12-play, 72-yard scoring drive against the Irish, capped by his two-yard scoring running with 27 second left in regulation. He accounted for all 72 of the Wolverines yards on the drive, completing 5-of-6 passes for 55 yards and gaining 17 rushing yards on six attempts.
Robinson set the Big Ten rushing record for quarterbacks with 258 yards on 28 carries against the Irish. His rushing output is the best road effort ever for a Wolverine ground gainer and the fifth-best single-game effort in school history.
In addition to his two-yard game-winning scoring plunge, Robinson raced 87 yards for a touchdown during the second quarter at Notre Dame. The scoring run was the longest run in Notre Dame Stadium history and the sixth longest run in Michigan football history.
Robinson reset the Michigan total offensive record with 502 yards at Notre Dame, surpassing his total of 383 yards set against Connecticut in the opener. He also set the school record with 68 total offensive plays (28 rushing and 40 passing) in the Notre Dame game.
Robinson leads the nation in rushing (227.5 avg.) and total offense (442.5 avg.) through two games.
