Washington Falls to Michigan, 31-10

Sep 11, 2021

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Blake Corum sprinted for a 67-yard touchdown to give Michigan a double-digit lead in the second quarter, and the Wolverines pulled away to beat Washington 31-10 Saturday night.

Michigan (2-0) relied on a tandem of running backs, swarming defense and special teams to take and keep control of the game.

The Huskies (0-2) have lost their first two games — including the opener to Montana — for the first time since 2008.

Corum ran for 171 yards and three touchdowns, a week after he had 111 yards rushing and scored twice in the season-opening rout over Western Michigan.

Hassan Haskins had 155 yards rushing and a score for the Wolverines, whose passing game was limited without injured receiver Ronnie Bell.

With the punt team on the field facing a fourth-and-1 from the Michigan 30, a short snap went to Michael Barrett and he ran 3 yards for a first down. Corum ran through a huge hole on the next play and he ran past the secondary to give the Wolverines a 10-0 lead.

Washington was scoreless until Peyton Henry made a 28-yard field goal with 5:54 left in the third quarter. By the time Dylan Morris threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to Terrell Bynum early in the fourth quarter, the Huskies were down by two touchdowns.

Morris completed 20 of 37 passes for 293 yards and a touchdown. Bynum had five receptions for 115 yards and a score.

Michigan's Cade McNamara was 7 of 15 for just 44 yards passing.
