In order to help No. 4 Michigan defeat Michigan State by a score of 29-7 on Saturday night, Blake Corum ran for 177 yards and scored twice, and Jake Moody kicked five field goals.
After temporarily falling behind late in the first quarter, the Wolverines (8-0, 5-0 Big Ten) rallied 26 straight points to regain the lead.
In the first half, the Spartans (3-5, 1-4) were 0 for 2 on fourth down.
Midway through the second quarter, after reviewing a location and deciding to go for it rather than kicking a short field goal to tie the game, they handed it over on downs.
After taking a 13-7 lead into the break, Michigan maintained its lead throughout the second half, outscoring Michigan State 133-8 in the third.
The Wolverines led 22-7 early in the fourth quarter thanks to a career-long 54-yard field goal by Moody, the current Lou Groza Award winner given to the greatest place kicker in the country.
