Michigan's Robinson dashes into record books

WEST LAFAYETTE, IND. - Denard Robinson looked like his old, efficient self Saturday. The Michigan quarterback rushed 24 times for 235 yards, threw for one touchdown and helped lead the Wolverines to a 44-13 rout at Purdue on Saturday afternoon.

It was a stark contrast to the frustrated quarterback who apologized for his subpar performance at Notre Dame two weeks ago. The senior was 8-for-15 through the air Saturday and did not throw an interception for the first time this season.

Robinson became the Big Ten's career rushing leader among quarterbacks, passing Indiana's Antwaan Randle El (3,895). Robinson now has 3,905 yards and broke a tie with Kent State's Josh Cribbs to move into fifth place in NCAA history for yards rushing among quarterbacks.
