Denard Robinson

QB Michigan, Soph.

Last Week: 17-of-29 passing for 215 yards, one TD and three INTs; 21 rushes for 86 yards and one TD in 34-17 loss to Michigan State

Season: 84-of-125 passing for 1,223 yards, eight TDs and four INTs; 119 rushes for 991 yards and nine TDs

Last season Tate Forcier got the Wolverines off to a 4-0 start before a loss to Michigan State started a free fall. A year later, it gets no easier for Robinson as he tries to avoid a similar script. This week he'll face Adrian Clayborn and an Iowa defense that's ranked second against the run, giving up only 63.2 yards per game, and has allowed just one runner to hit the century mark in the last 18 games.

Up Next: Saturday vs. No. 15 Iowa
