Stat Pack: Week 13 

Rivalry Week took a toll on this week’s Associated Press Top 25 Poll. 

No. 2 Michigan claimed the biggest win of the week and arguably the biggest one of the season so far. The Wolverines defeated No. 6 Ohio State 30-24 after defensive back Rod Moore sealed the game with an interception in the final minute.

No. 5 Oregon advanced to the Pac-12 Championship game, while Atlantic Coast Conference Championship participant No. 10 Louisville fell to Kentucky 38-31. 

Here are some of the top statistical performances from Week 13. 

Blake Corum, Michigan 

The Wolverines leaned heavily on the duo of running back Blake Corum and quarterback J.J. McCarthy, as the pair combined for three touchdowns against the Buckeyes. 

Corum split the job with running back Donovan Edwards, who rushed for over 200 yards a year ago against the Ohio State defense. Both had at least 10 carries and at least 31 yards rushing, and Corum played his role as the lead back. 

Corum averaged four yards per carry and earned his due down the stretch. He had just 19 rushing yards in the first half. 

When Michigan needed an inch, Corum provided a yard. When the Wolverines needed a yard, he gave them three. 

Corum finished with 88 rushing yards and two touchdowns. His first score helped him capture the Wolverines’ single-season rushing touchdown record, and Corum has 22 on the year. 

Both of Corum’s scores against Ohio State came within the red zone, as he ran in 22-yard and 1-yard touchdowns. 

Now, Corum and the Wolverines enter the postseason undefeated and hungry to defend two-straight Big Ten titles. 

Audric Estime, Notre Dame 

Notre Dame running back Audric Estime has had a strong season and should be in contention for All-American recognition. 

He added to his year on Saturday with a 238-yard performance at Stanford. It was a season-high rushing output for the junior.

Estime broke of his longest run of the day against the Cardinal with a 39-yard score in the first quarter. It came on his fourth carry. 

The Nyack, New York, native tore up the field for four touchdowns, also a season-high for the Fighting Irish ball-carrier. 

Estime now owns the single-season rushing record at Notre Dame with 18 this seeason. 

Noah Fifita, Arizona 

Arizona quarterback Noah Fifita has enjoyed a solid season under the radar amid a flurry of fantastic quarterback play in the Pac-12. 

On Saturday, Fifita threw for a program-record 527 yards and five touchdowns. Fifita had two touchdown passes of less than 10 yards and added three of at least 21 yards. 

The Wildcats started fast and kept their foot on the gas pedal against Arizona State. The final time the two rival schools meet in the Pac-12 ended with Arizona in 59-23 triumph, and Fifita had a large role. 

By halftime Fifita already had 357 passing yards and two touchdowns. He only piled on more in the second half. 

With the win, Arizona improved to 9-3 and earned its highest win total since the 2014 season. 

Cody Schrader, Missouri 

No. 9 Missouri has had a season beyond expectations, and head coach Eli Drinkwitz said last week that the program has new respectability after reaching nine wins for the first time since 2014. 

The Tigers had another test in Arkansas on the road last weekend, and they emerged victorious in a 48-14 blowout. 

Former walk-on and running back Cody Shrader turned in his latest impressive performance, turning in 217 rushing yards and a touchdown. 

For a fifth-straight game, Schrader had at least 100 rushing yards breaking the Missouri school record. 

Schrader’s longest run went for 49 yards and his touchdown came from 3 yards out in the first quarter. 

Schrader leads the Southeastern Conference with 1,489 rushing yards. 

Taulia Tagovailoa, Maryland 

The Big Ten now has a new all-time leading passer.

Last season, Taulia Tagovailoa became Maryland’s all-time leading passing in career yards. This year, he’s broken the conference record eclipsing 11,200 yards. 

Tagovailoa and the Terrapins beat Rutgers on the road 42-24, and the quarterback threw for over 300 yards for the third time this season. 

Tagovailoa had 361 passing yards, a season-high, at the Scarlet Knights. He also added three passing touchdowns, and all three came within the first 20 minutes of the game for more than 17 yards. 

Tagovailoa leads the Big Ten with 3,377 passing yards and 25 touchdowns.
