Michigan played its best -- and most complete -- game of the season Saturday in a Big Ten-opening 44-13 win over Purdue in West Lafayette, Ind., and it was a game that proved many things for the Wolverines.

It established Michigan as a contender in the Legends Division, as Michigan State struggled with Indiana, Northwestern lost to Penn State and Nebraska lost to Ohio State on Saturday. It also showed continued improvement from the Wolverines as the season has progressed, that they built on the positives, especially defensively, from a 13-6 loss to Notre Dame two weeks ago.

Senior quarterback Denard Robinson also rediscovered himself as he had the second-best running game of his college career against the Boilermakers.
