Big Game Don will live on forever

It was a tough season for Donovan Edwards. He never really got things going outside of the Penn State game, so that's why it was so awesome to see him rip off a pair of 40-yard plus touchdown runs on Monday night in the first quarter.

Edwards has incredible speed and after seeing him run into the back of offensive lineman too many times this season, he bounced outside and was gone. The second he got daylight, you knew the Washington defense wasn't going to stop him.

It was the same thing on the second run. Edwards was patient, found a hole, and boom. Touchdown. It was incredible and those runs had to remind every Michigan football fan of the touchdown runs against Ohio State in 2022.

The touchdown runs on Monday night weren't as long, but they were just as legendary. Donovan Edwards will be forever known as Big Game Don and like so many on this squad, he's a Michigan football legend.
