No Denard No Problem For Michigan

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Devin Gardner replaced Denard Robinson in a surprise quarterback switch by Michigan right before kickoff, throwing two touchdown passes and running for another score to lead the Wolverines past Minnesota 35-13 on Saturday.
Gardner woke up the Wolverines (6-3, 4-1 Big Ten) after they went two straight games without a touchdown, guiding scoring drives of 91, 90, 86 and 79 yards to squash the hope the Gophers (5-4, 1-4) had of an upset with Michigan's senior star on the sideline.
Robinson has been bothered by nerve damage in his right elbow, but he was expected to play. Gardner didn't let the Wolverines down, going 12 for 18 for 234 yards despite one interception to hand the Gophers their 38th loss in the last 41 games for the Little Brown Jug trophy. Minnesota hasn't beaten Michigan at home since 1977.
