Michigan's Denard Robinson was named a Manning Award "Star of the Week" for his performance at Purdue on Saturday. The senior quarterback completed eight-of-16 passes for 105 yards and a touchdown and racked up 235 rushing yards, the second-best single-game performance by a Big Ten signal caller, to become the conference's all-time leader in career rushing yards by a quarterback.

College football fans can now go to the Allstate Sugar Bowl Facebook page by clicking on this link to vote for what they think was the best performance from this past weekend. When voting closes on Thursday at 11 a.m. CT, the top vote-getter will be announced as the Manning Award Player of the Week.

The Manning Award was created by the Allstate Sugar Bowl in 2004 and is the only quarterback award that includes the candidates' bowl performances in its balloting.
