It wasn’t the high-powered offensive shoot-out that some expected, but the Michigan Wolverines easily disposed of the Washington Huskies on Saturday by a score of 31-10.

Michigan running back Blake Corum had another impressive outing, accounting for 231 all-purpose yards, 171 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns. Hassan Haskins, part of Michigan’s two-headed monster at the running back position, added 155 yards on 27 carries. Combined, the Michigan rushing attack finished the evening with 345 yards and 4 touchdowns on 55 total carries.
