ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Behind breakout performances from junior/sophomore running back Drake Johnson and junior/sophomore wide receiver Amara Darboh, the University of Michigan football team dispatched of Indiana, 34-10, on Homecoming on Saturday (Nov. 1) inside Michigan Stadium. The Wolverines, who opened a 17-point first-half lead, have now won 19 straight meetings between the two schools dating back to 1988 and are 54-9 in the all-time series.
Johnson came on in the second half and exploded, rushing 16 times for 122 yards and a pair of scores. Darboh had a career day, as well, hauling in nine passes for 107 yards and a touchdown. Graduate student quarterback Devin Gardner orchestrated the offense to a balanced performance, going 22-of-29 for 220 yards and a pair of touchdown throws.
The defense was just as strong, locking down the Hoosiers, the owners of the eighth-best rushing attack in the NCAA, to only 167 yards on the ground, more than 120 yards below their season average. The Wolverines kept Indiana’s Tevin Coleman — the nation’s leading rusher at 170 yards per game — out of the end zone and allowed only 24 yards passing. Leading the way for Michigan was fifth-year senior linebacker Jake Ryan, who made a team-best 11 tackles, including 2.5 tackles-for-loss, and a pair of forced fumbles.
