However, on Michigan's second possession of the second half, they put things back to normal, driving for their sixth touchdown of the afternoon and extending their lead over Minnesota to 45-0.
It took the Wolverines just five plays to cover 54 yards on their most recent drive. They were assisted by a roughing the passer penalty that added more yardage to an 18-yard pass from Denard Robinson to Kevin Koger and put the Wolverines inside the Minnesota 10-yard line. Two plays later, Fitzgerald Toussaint took a handoff into the end zone from a yard out for another Michigan score.
With approximately eight minutes left in the third quarter of play, the Minnesota Golden Gophers trail the Michigan Wolverines by a score of 45-0 in the battle for the Little Brown Jug.
