Michigan football breezed through its non-conference schedule, scoring a school-record 166 points through its first three games of the 2022 season.

And while the Wolverines got its first win in conference play, it wasn't in that sort of dominant fashion, beating Maryland 34-27 at home to continue their four-game win streak.

Michigan running back Blake Corum becoming a top RB in Big Ten

Through the first four games, Michigan running back Blake Corum is one of five Big Ten running backs to average over 100 yards rushing per game, joining Illinois' Chase Brown, Minnesota's Mohamed Ibrahim, Wisconsin's Braelon Allen and Nebraska's Anthony Grant.

However, Corum leads the conference with 7.5 yards per carry and nine rushing touchdowns, averaging 119.5 yards per game.

Against Maryland, that yards-per-game average was boosted significantly, recording 243 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 30 carries against the Terrapins, later being named the National Running Back of the Week by the Doak Walker Award, and Big Ten Player of the Week.
