Michigan's Denard Robinson has been selected as this week's Manning Award Player of the Week. Robinson earned the most-ever votes to claim his first win over seven other Manning Award Stars of the Week in the Allstate Sugar Bowl's Facebook contest. The Deerfield Beach, Fla., native racked up 8,269 votes, far surpassing the previous record for highest votes which was 2,808.
Robinson's 235 yards on the ground last weekend made him the Big Ten's all-time rushing leader among quarterbacks with a total of 3,905. This number also marked the second-most rushing yards in a single game by a Big Ten quarterback, short of his own record of 258 yards at Notre Dame Sept. 11, 2010. The senior quarterback also passed for 105 yards and one score as the Wolverines rolled to a 44-13 victory over Purdue. Robinson now has five career 200-yard rushing games, including two this season.
