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.
