Ann Arbor, Mich. • Denard Robinson threw two touchdown passes and ran for two scores to lead No. 25 Michigan to a 45-0 win over Illinois on Saturday.
The Wolverines (4-2, 2-0 Big Ten) got a scare when Robinson left the game with an undisclosed injury late in the first quarter. He missed just one-plus possessions, though, and returned to score on a 6-yard run to put Michigan up 17-0 late in the first half.
Robinson ran for a 49-yard score, which gave him 10,000-plus career yards of offense, on the Wolverines' first drive of the second half and tossed an 8-yard TD pass to Devin Funchess on their next possession to make it 31-0.
