Today's announced attendance of 112,276 marks the 230th consecutive game of more than 100,000 fans at Michigan Stadium.
Michigan's home attendance total for its seven home games was 783,276, an average of 111,897 fans per game. The average set a new NCAA record, breaking the previous record of 111,025 set by Michigan in 2004.
U-M fell to 49-14-1 in the all-time series against the Badgers.
Sophomore quarterback Denard Robinson set a new NCAA record for rushing yards in a season by a quarterback on a 12-yard run in the third quarter. After gaining 121 yards on the ground against Wisconsin, Robinson's season total sits at 1,538 yards. He broke the record held by Air Force's Beau Morgan (1,494 yards in 1996).
Robinson became the first quarterback in NCAA history to rush and pass for 1,500 on the season with his performance against the Badgers.
With a 14-yard completion to junior/sophomore slot receiver Roy Roundtree in the first quarter, Robinson eclipsed the 2,000-yard passing mark on the season, marking the 17th time a Michigan quarterback has passed for at least 2,000 yards in a season.
Robinson's two rushing touchdowns give him 14 on the season, the sixth-best total in program history.
Roundtree had 114 yards receiving, his fourth game this season with more than 100 yards.
Freshman wide receiver Jeremy Jackson recorded his first career reception with a fourth-quarter catch. He finished the game with two receptions for 24 yards.

Freshman cornerback Courtney Avery forced his first career fumble in the third quarter, while senior linebacker Jonas Mouton recovered his second fumble of the season and third of his career on the same play.
Senior cornerback James Rogers recorded his third interception in two games with a second-quarter interception of Wisconsin quarterback Scott Tolzien.
The Michigan defense has forced at least one turnover in each of the last three games. U-M recovered a fumble against Illinois, had two interceptions and three fumble recoveries against Purdue and an interception and fumble recovery against Wisconsin.
Junior/sophomore wide receiver Patrick Collins, senior tight end Jon Bills, senior safety Karl Tech and senior linebacker Rasheed Furrha were selected as game captains to go along with season captains Mark Moundros and Stephen Schilling.
