ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Michigan quarterback Jake Rudock had his best game yet in a Maize and Blue uniform.
In fact, U-M’s signal caller threw for a career-high 337 yards passing, completing 18-of-25 passes with three total touchdowns, as No. 16 Michigan defeated Rutgers 49-16 Saturday at the Big House.
“You have those games, where you get into a rhythm,” Rudock said afterwards. “Maybe you can see the ball get completed, then completed. You’re seeing the field well, that’s a big thing. So I think that’s a big tribute to our coaches giving us a really good scheme.”
Good scheme, indeed, as Rudock was sable to find 10 different Wolverine receivers for completions today. He also completed touchdown passes to Amara Darboh and Jehu Chesson.
“It’s something we’ve been working on,” Rudock said of finding his receivers downfield. “Its 1-on-1 chances for our guys to make a play. And just understanding that I can trust them.”
Michigan (7-2, 4-1 Big Ten) plays at Indiana next Saturday.
