ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Denard Robinson threw two touchdown passes and ran for two scores to help No. 20 Michigan rout No. 17 Nebraska 45-17 Saturday.

The Wolverines (9-2, 5-2 Big Ten) moved into second place in the conference's Legends Division and kept its chances of playing in a BCS bowl for the first time since the 2006 season.

The Cornhuskers (8-3, 4-3) lost any hope of playing in the Big Ten's first title game.

Michigan State clinched its spot in the Dec. 3 game in Indianapolis with a win over Indiana and Michigan's victory against Nebraska.
