NEW HAVEN, Conn. – For the second straight week, University of Michigan sophomore quarterback Denard Robinson (Deerfield Beach, Fla./Deerfield Beach HS) has been named the Walter Camp Football Foundation National Offensive Player of the Week. Robinson collects this week’s honor after racking up 502 yards of total offense in the Wolverines’ 28-24 victory at Notre Dame yesterday.
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 gained 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
