ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Sophomore quarterback Denard Robinson (Deerfield Beach, Fla./Deerfield Beach HS) threw two touchdown passes to junior wide receiver Darryl Stonum (Stafford, Texas/Dulles) in a 45-second span late in the first half and junior superback Michael Shaw (Trotwood, Ohio/Trotwood-Madison) rushed for a career-high 126 yards and three scores as the University of Michigan football team (No. 20 AP/No. 22 USA Today) held off Massachusetts (No. 18 FCS), 42-37, on Saturday (Sept. 18) at Michigan Stadium. The Wolverines marched into the end zone on five consecutive possessions between the second and fourth quarters, eclipsing 500 total yards of offense for the second week in a row (525).

Nice offense, but where was the defense?????

Score at the end of the 3rd quarter. Only sort of bad.

Our friend Cheryl from T.C. and her kids! It's amazing how much they all look alike!
