Michigan 44, Purdue 13 -- final

Michigan did exactly what it had to do today at Purdue -- and that was win its Big Ten season opener.

The Wolverines dominated from start to finish. Denard Robinson became Michigan's fifth-leading rusher while also setting a Big Ten quarterback record for rushing yards.

Purdue couldn't establish a happy medium against the Wolverines. No ground presence and shaky play from quarterback Caleb TerBush most certainly did in the Boilers.

Be on the lookout for my follow-up piece. I'll cover 10 things from today's game that we learned or were reminded of.

Thanks for tuning in to the live blog -- it was fun, as usual. See you next week.
