Nebraska Vs. Michigan Final Score: Denard Robinson Leads Wolverines To Win

The Michigan Wolverines and Nebraska Cornhuskers were projected to put on of the few decent games of Saturday's early afternoon college football schedule, but the game between ranked opponents didn't exactly live up to the hype. Denard Robinson threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more as the Wolverines rolled in the second half on the way to a final score of 45-17 in Ann Arbor.

The No. 18 ranked Wolverines led just 17-10 at halftime, but Denard Robinson and running back Fitzgerald Toussaint each contributed a pair of second half touchdowns to upset the 16th-ranked Cornhuskers.

Robinson completed 11 of his 18 passing attempts for 180 yards and a pair of touchdowns through the air to supplement a pair of touchdowns and 83 yards rushing for the versatile quarterback. Toussaint added 138 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 29 rushing attempts for the sophomore running back.

The Cornhuskers simply didn't get as much out of quarterback Taylor Martinez as they needed. The sophomore converted nine of his 23 passing attempts for 122 yards and a touchdowns and added 49 yards on the ground, but Michigan was just too much for the visiting team when all was said and done.

Nebraska Vs. Michigan Halftime Score: Denard Robinson A Leader Or Legend

The Michigan Wolverines lead the Nebraska Cornhuskers at the half of a critical Big Ten divisional game, whichever division that may be. The score is 17-10, with Denard Robinson responsible for both of those Big Blue touchdowns.
