ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Michigan has proven it can beat lackluster opponents by leaning on Denard Robinson's legs.
The 25th-ranked Wolverines (3-2, 1-0 Big Ten) might be able to get away with that again Saturday against Illinois (2-4, 0-2).
To beat better teams, such as Michigan State next week, Michigan knows Robinson will have to make plays with his arm. Wolverines coach Brady Hoke says there's no question that is going to happen.
It will help Robinson, and the team, if handing off to Fitzgerald Toussaint becomes an effective option. It hasn't been so far. Toussaint ran for just 19 yards on 17 carries in last week's win over Purdue and has just 169 yards rushing in four games this season after running for 1,091 yards last year.
