Denard Robinson is two rushing touchdowns shy of becoming only the eighth player in NCAA history to rush for 40 touchdowns and pass for 40 touchdowns.

With 17 more tackles, Jordan Kovacs will become the 15th player and first defensive back in school history to join the 300 tackle club. It’s time to start wondering where he will land on this list: Michigan Football’s All-Time 10 Best Defensive Backs

Last week, true freshman linebacker Joe Bolden registered 10 tackles.

Frank Clark made his season debut against Air Force and recorded 4 tackles, 2 TFLs and 1 pass break up.

Devin Funchess hauled in 4 receptions for 106 yards and a TD last week. He was named the Big Ten’s Freshmen of the Week for his efforts.

Denard Robinson earned his 8th Big Ten Player of the Week award. He is one behind Ron Dayne for the most weekly honors in conference history.

Robinson has 8,813 yards of total offense. He needs 488 to pass Chad Henne for No. 1 on Michigan’s all-time list.

Brady Hoke on Devin Funchess: “Obviously we recruited him, so we thought he had some ability. He’s done a nice job, I will say. He’s bigger than when he got here. He’s not afraid, which is good, because blocking’s a big part. He’s a little bit of a mismatch problem because of his range and his ability to run.”

ESPNs accuscore projects Michigan to win by a final score of 55-8, teamrankings.com has Michigan winning 53-4.

Michigan has 3 players with over 100 receiving yards this season; Jeremy Gallon (114), Devin Gardner (107), and Devin Funchess (106).

Michigan receiver Drew Dileo is a big fan of Jordan Kovacs and thinks Will Campbell over does the polo gear sometimes (see video below)
