Michigan running back Blake Corum dropped out of third place. Wolverine 19-17 victory over Illinois after an apparent left knee injury near the end of the first half. Corum returned to the field for one shot early in the second half, but remained out of the game without a helmet for the remainder of the game.

Corum snapped the shot while colliding with 2nd and 10th in the Illinois red zone. He performed a typical stretch but grabbed his knee after being awkwardly grabbed by the Illinois defenseman Xavier Scott. Corum fumbled the ball, grabbing his knee after a tackle, allowing Illinois to stop the shot outside the end zone.

Wolverine coach Jim Harbaugh told reporters after the game that after evaluation, Corum’s knee was “structurally healthy”; however, it was still too early to tell if Corum could recover for the Wolverines’ game against No. 2 Ohio State on November 26.

“They have to come back and we’ll see what happens tomorrow, what it’s like tomorrow,” Harbaugh said.

The junior was unstoppable for Michigan in the first half with 103 yards and a lone touchdown for the Wolverines. He finished fourth nationally with 1,349 rushing yards in Week 12 and is a serious contender for the Heisman Trophy. Reserve running back Donovan Edwards was also eliminated against the Illini, leaving freshman CJ Stokes as the main hitter.

Stokes rushed for 36 yards on 11 carries in relief as Michigan fled for a field goal with less than a minute left in the game against Illinois. But now all eyes will be on Corum and Edwards as the Wolverines gear up for a game against Ohio State that has a trip to a Big Ten championship game on the line.
