Nebraska Vs. Michigan: Denard Robinson Gives Wolverines Early Lead

The Michigan Wolverines are off to a good start in one of the few games between two ranked opponents on Wednesday as Denard Robinson's team has put a touchdown on the board early against the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Robinson a six-yard pass to Jeremy Gallon to give the Wolverines a 7-0 lead early in the first quarter.

Robinson opened the scoring drive in the quarterback's typical fashion with a rush of 16 yards before letting his arm do the work on the rest of the drive. The biggest play of the drive was a 46-yard completion to wide receiver Roy Roundtree on third-and-eight that gave the Wolverines a first-and-goal.

Robinson has completed four of his six passes for 64 yards and a touchdown while also leading Michigan in rushing with three carries for 19 yards. The Cornhuskers quarterback isn't off to quite as hot of a start as Taylor Martinez rushed twice and then threw an incomplete pass as Nebraska went three and out on their first drive of the game.
