Ann Arbor, MI (Sports Network) - Fitzgerald Toussaint carried the ball 20
times for 170 yards and two touchdowns, as the 17th-ranked Michigan Wolverines
cruised past the Purdue Boilermakers, 36-14.
Denard Robinson completed 9-of-14 passes for 170 yards and an interception for
the Wolverines (7-1, 3-1 Big Ten), who have won eight of their last nine games
following the bye week. Robinson also carried the ball 15 times for 63 yards
and a score.
Michigan opened the season with six consecutive victories, and Brady Hoke,
couldn't have asked for a better beginning to his tenure as head coach. The
Wolverines, though, fell to rival Michigan State by a 28-14 final on the road
two weeks ago.
Caleb TerBush connected on 9-of-13 passes for 156 yards and a touchdown for
the Boilermakers (4-4, 2-2), who were trying to put together back-to-back wins
for the first time this season after beating Illinois last week. Robert Marve
completed 8-of-14 passes for 66 yards, a touchdown and an interception.
