ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Blake Corum was eager to be a workhorse. The Michigan running back got his wish on Saturday and delivered a game-changing performance.
Corum rushed for a career-high 243 yards and two touchdowns and No. 4 Michigan topped Maryland 34-27 in the Big Ten opener for both teams.
Corum, who tied the school record with five rushing touchdowns against UConn a week earlier, had a career-high 30 carries. He became the first Michigan back to rush for 200 yards since Karan Higdon in 2017.
