Hassan Haskins’ career day lifts No. 7 Michigan over Indiana

Hassan Haskins rushed for a career-high 168 yards and a touchdown and tight end Luke Schoonmaker caught two TD passes, lifting No. 7 Michigan to a 29-7 win over Indiana in Ann Arbor, Mich.

Haskins took on the bulk of the run game after sophomore running back Blake Corum suffered an injury in the first quarter and did not return.

Even without Corum, Michigan (8-1, 5-1 Big Ten) rolled up 188 rushing yards and 411 yards of total offense to avenge a 38-21 loss at Indiana last season. Quarterback Cade McNamara passed for 168 yards and two TDs. McNamara connected on a 50-yard pass to Cornelius Johnson early in the fourth quarter, then an 8-yard TD pass to Schoonmaker to put the Wolverines up 29-7.

Indiana (2-7, 0-6 Big Ten) dropped its fifth straight and is still seeking its first conference win. Freshman quarterback Donaven McCulley, making his second career start, finished with 88 yards passing and 37 yards rushing. Michigan’s defense harassed McCulley for much of the night, recording two sacks and nine pressures.

Haskins rushed for 117 yards in the first half, helping Michigan build a 17-7 halftime lead.

After a 34-yard Jake Moody field goal put Michigan up 3-0 to end the first quarter, the Wolverines took advantage of a short field off a turnover to score their first TD. Linebacker David Ojabo came up with a strip sack of McCulley, which Michigan recovered at Indiana’s 25-yard line. Four plays later, Haskins plunged in on a 2-yard TD run, putting the Wolverines up 10-0.

Indiana answered with a 10-play, 75-yard TD drive, sparked by the arm and legs of McCulley. A 24-yard run by McCulley got Indiana down to the Michigan 2, and Chris Childers scored on a 1-yard TD run, cutting Michigan’s lead to 10-7.

But Michigan responded with a quick four-play, 75-yard TD drive, sparked by a 62-yard run from Haskins. McNamara capped the drive with a 12-yard TD pass to Schoonmaker, putting Michigan up 17-7 with 6:28 left in the second quarter.

Indiana lost starting running back Stephen Carr in the first quarter to a leg injury.
