Michigan's Receivers Embracing Downfield Blocking: 'Give That Extra Effort'

The Michigan Wolverines did plenty well, especially on offense, in their 49-24 blowout win at Minnesota last week. Perhaps one of the most impressive aspects was the run blocking, which helped the Wolverines average 8.3 yards per carry on the night. This week, head coach Jim Harbaugh pointed out how well his offensive line, tight ends and senior fullback Ben Mason did opening up holes for the backs, but he also made sure to give credit to his receivers on the outside, who are taking pride in their downfield blocking.
