TWTW: Robinson Sets Records, Michigan Loses To Badgers

((HT: WISC-TV Madison))

Michigan's Denard Robinson has set two NCAA records against Wisconsin. He broke Beau Morgan's major-college record for yards rushing by quarterbacks and became the first player in NCAA history with 1,500 yards rushing and 1,500 yards passing in one year.

Morgan had 1,494 yards rushing for Air Force in 1996. Robinson beat that with a 12-yard run in the third quarter against the Badgers.

Jason Foster ran for 1,844 yards for Georgia Southern in 2007, setting the Football Championship Subdivision record.

Pat White, who starred in Rich Rodriguez's system when the coach was at West Virginia threw for 1,724 and ran for 1,335 in 2007.

Emily Kumlien has the look back at everything but the Robinson record in the Wisconson win...
