Higdon Reaches 1,000 Yards on the Season

It’s been awhile since Michigan had a 1,000 yard back. In fact, the last time a Michigan running back achieved the feat was in 2011 (QB Denard Robinson eclipsed 1,000 in 2011 and 2012 as the Wolverines leading rusher).

But, on Saturday in Piscataway, the Wolverines have yet another to join that storied list.

Going into the game at Rutgers, Karan Higdon needed just 37 yards to get to 1,000. In the first half, the Michigan team captain got 38, and now has 1,001 yards on the season — with two-and-a-half regular season games left to go.

Higdon also has accounted for 14 of Michigan’s 21 first-half points, having scored two touchdowns thus far.

Higdon was very close to getting to 1,000 a year ago, finishing the season with 994 yards. He had stated at Big Ten Media Days this past summer that if he had reached that milestone, he may not have chosen to return to Ann Arbor for his senior season.
