Watch: Michigan RB Blake Corum gives Wolverines insurance, scores 12-yard TD

Blake Corum found the end zone for the first time Monday night and gave No. 1 Michigan some added insurance.

Corum carried the football 12 yards and shed a few tackles to cross the goal line, helping the Wolverines take a 27-13 lead over No. 2 Washington in the College Football Playoff National Championship.

Both teams traded field goals after Washington quarterback Michael Penix Jr. was intercepted by Michigan defensive back Will Johnson.

Neither team could muster offense when they had possession. As of 7:09 left in the fourth quarter, Michigan has gone 1-for-9 on third down and Washington 2-for-11.

Michigan leads 26-13 with just over seven minutes left to play.
