Michigan crushes Delaware State

Michigan had a record-breaking day in a 63-6 win over Delaware State on Saturday.

The Wolverines (5-2) set team marks with 442 yards in the first half and 727 total. They matched a school record with a 28-point first quarter and led 49-3 with their second-highest score by halftime.

The Hornets (1-4) didn't come close to repeating Appalachian State's upset in 2007 at the Big House, but the second-tier program got paid $550,000 to forfeit a Mid-Eastern Athletic game and to give Michigan a tuneup game.

Quarterback Tate Forcier started, a week after having a concussion, and led the Wolverines to a TD on his only drive and left the game healthy.

Denard Robinson threw two touchdown passes on just four attempts and fumbled. Michigan also used its third-, fourth- and fifth-string quarterbacks.
