RECAP: Michigan routs Rutgers, 78-0

TMI's Josh Newkirk and Josh Henschke breakdown Michigan's dominating 78-0 win against Rutgers.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- In record setting fashion, Michigan dominated Rutgers 78-0 Saturday night, in one of the more lopsided games in U-M's storied history. 

Topics include: 

  1. Jabrill for Heisman -- Michigan's Jabrill Peppers scored two touchdowns, ran for 74 yards on three carries, and had one spectacular punt return touchdown overturned due to a penalty. Afterwards, Jim Harbaugh called him a Heisman favorite, and we agree.
  2. Defense dominant -- U-M's defense yielded zero points, two first downs and 39 total yards. Simply put, they were fantastic.
  3. Rushing attack rolls -- Michigan ran the ball for 481 yards, including tying a team-record with one rushing scores.
