Blake Corum rakes in Rose Bowl honor for huge outing vs. Maryland
Blake Corum and Michigan had a fight on their hands in their Week 4 matchup with Maryland.
Although the Wolverines pulled down the win 34-27, Maryland put up quite a fight. Michigan struggled early on to keep pace with the Terrapins, and led by QB Taulia Tagovailoa, Maryland capitalized on a key takeaway early to put the Terrapins up 13-10. It was the first time this season that Michigan has trailed an opponent.
One individual that didn’t struggle was Corum, Michigan’s star running back. By halftime, Corum already had 132 yards rushing and 1 touchdown. Corum finished with career highs in both carries and yards and ended up finishing the game as the first Michigan running back to have over 200 yards rushing in a game since 2017.
On Monday, the Rose Bowl recognized Corum’s performance in the Maryland game, naming him the Rose Bowl B1G Player of the Week. The Rose Bowl acknowledged Corum’s 243 rushing yards and 2 rushing touchdowns as well.
