Michigan football might not have scored 52 points without the two interception returns for touchdowns. But at the same time, J.J. McCarthy didn’t even play in the fourth quarter and the offense still totaled 432 yards of total offense.
The running game didn’t reach 200 yards for the third week in a row, however, with the way McCarthy was throwing the ball, it wasn’t necessary. Michigan football ran the ball well and had three backs average more than five yards per attempt.
Blake Corum got just nine carries but produced 69 yards and a touchdown. The Wolverines don’t need to overwork him against Minnesota and it was good to see Kalel Mullings get 47 yards on eight carries. He looks better every week.
Everyone is talking about Roman Wilson this season, but Cornelius Johnson has been really productive too with 18 receptions for 357 yards, as well as a touchdown. Colston Loveland also caught a touchdown and the offense is firing on all cylinders.
