Toussaint Helps #22 Michigan Beat Illini
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) -- Fitzgerald Toussaint ran for 192 yards and a touchdown and backup quarterback Devin Gardner threw a key TD pass to lead No. 22 Michigan past Illinois 31-14 on Saturday.

Denard Robinson didn't play after a big third-quarter hit. Details about his injury weren't available. In relief Gardner hit Martavious Odoms for a fourth quarter touchdown that gave Michigan (8-2, 4-2 Big Ten) a 24-7 lead after Illinois scored.

The Illini (6-4, 2-4) finished with 214 yards of offense but had just 30 at halftime. For the fourth week in a row they didn't score in the first half and they've lost four straight.

Illinois trailed 17-7 after quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase's 14-yard third-quarter touchdown run. But he was intercepted by J.T Floyd on the next Illinois possession to set up Odoms' TD.
