CollegeFootballNews' take on the offensive explosion, and victory, yesterday.

ran for four scores and
threw for 503 yards and ran for three touchdowns as Michigan came up with 751 yards of total offense in the wild win. Indiana did its part with three touchdown passes and a scoring run from

- The statistics are silly, but it’s nice to know the Michigan offense can turn it on when it has to. Devin Gardner completed 21-of-29 passes for 503 yards and two scores and ran for 81 yards and three touchdowns, Fitzgerald Toussaint ran 32 times for 151 yard and four touchdowns, and Jeremy Gallon went off, catching 14 passes for 369 yards and two scores.

coming up in two weeks. The offense won’t get half as much production against the Spartans as it did against the Hoosiers, but this has to be a confidence booster – at least for the offense.
