Michigan junior RB Blake Corum had another brilliant day in Michigan’s 34-3 triumph over Nebraska Saturday. Corum scored a touchdown for the 10th straight game, and he also had his 7th consecutive game with 100 yards or more. The 3rd-ranked Wolverines are 10-0 this season.
Michigan’s offensive line was manhandling Nebraska’s front, and Corum was off to a great start. He was past the century mark in the first half and delivered body blows all night to the Huskers. At the end of the game, the Heisman hopeful had 28 carries for 162 yards and this touchdown.
Corum has asserted himself as one of the best running backs in the country and a no-doubt Heisman Trophy contender.
Michigan Head Coach Jim Harbaugh endorsed Corum for the Heisman Trophy when he met with the media after the game. “He’s definitely having an MVP season,” Harbaugh said. “It would be hard to imagine that he wouldn’t … the way he’s going, win the Heisman Trophy.”
Corum has rushed for 1,302 yards this season, and while he has caught just 9 passes for 41 yards this season, he has demonstrated in the past that he can catch the football. He has also scored 30 rushing touchdowns in his first three seasons with the Wolverines.
The Wolverines are on track for a season-ending confrontation with undefeated and 2nd-ranked Ohio State. Michigan will face the Buckeyes in Columbus November 26,
