Week 2: College Football Player of the Week

words_Jordan Hagedorn

Last week, I named Boise State QB Kellen Moore my College Football Player of the Week after a big win over Virginia Tech. This week, Michigan Sophomore QB Denard Robinson gets the nod.

Robinson and the Wolverines traveled to Notre Dame Stadium on Saturday to take on the Fighting Irish in one of the highly anticipated games of Week 2. Trailing 21-7 lead at halftime, Notre Dame scored 17 straight points to take the lead 24-21 at the 3:41 mark in the fourth quarter. That’s when Robinson led the Wolverines down the field and capped off a 12-play, 72-yard drive with a two-yard rushing TD.

Robinson ended up with 244 yards, connecting on 24 of his 40 attempts, but even more impressive he ran 28 times for 258 and two TDs. He ran for an 87-yard TD in the second quarter, which helped him average 9.2 yards per carry for the game. His other rushing TD was the aforementioned game-winning two-yard scamper while his passing touchdown was a 31-yard strike to Roy Roundtree in the first quarter.
