2. Kalel Mullings is making his case to surpass Donovan Edwards as RB2
Mullings actually outgained Edwards in total yards for the record. He had double the carries but did less in the passing game. However, over the last two weeks, Mullings has just looked better than Edwards with the ball in his hands. It’s another feather in the cap for a rich offense, but concerning for Edwards who outplayed Corum at times a year ago.
Mullings averaged six yards a crack for Michigan football against Minnesota, almost nine a carry at Nebraska, and about seven versus Rutgers. Statistically speaking Edwards had his premiere performance on the ground in the Rutgers win, while he continues to be involved in the passing game every week, besides the Bowling Green victory.
Edwards almost had his first touchdown of the season, instead, Blake Corum stole it from him. It’s clear that the staff has plays specifically in the playbook for Corum or Mullings on the goal line though. Corum did have the longest run of the night for over 40 yards, but otherwise, he was relatively quiet.
