No. 3 Michigan leads Illinois 7-3 at Michigan Stadium in a game that felt like the Wolverines would dominate early but has seen the pace slow considerably. The Wolverines picked up 39 yards on the first play of the game, thanks to another crisp cut from Blake Corum, and went 75 yards on the opening possession to take a 7-0 lead. They haven’t scored since, however.
Making matters worse for the Wolverines, Corum left the game late in the first half after taking a hit in the left leg and immediately clutching his knee. Replays showed what looked to be a possible hyperextension. After being attended to by trainers, Corum walked to the locker room gingerly but on his own.
A Heisman contender, Corum’s status in the second half will be crucial as the Wolverines are already without No. 2 running back Donovan Edwards. Corum had already rushed for 103 yards and a touchdown with two receptions for 39 yards before leaving the game. Illinois’ Chase Brown has 48 yards rushing, and the Illini will open the third quarter with the ball.
