Michigan redshirt senior RB Ty Isaac rushed for 89 yards on 16 carries in the school's 29-13 win over Air Force on Saturday.

This includes a 32-yard run. Isaac also caught two passes for six yards in the victory. Michigan's offense only needed to score one touchdown, as the other points came from five field goals and one punt return touchdown. Isaac needs to remain the consistent part of Michigan's offense.
Sep 16 - 3:17 PM

Michigan redshirt senior RB Ty Isaac rushed for 133 yards on 20 carries in the school's 36-14 win over Cincinnati on Saturday.

Isaac is definitely Michigan's feature back, as he carried the ball 20 times in comparison to the next most carries of five. Isaac's biggest run went for 53 yards on a toss to the left side, and thanks to great blocking he practically went untouched until final contact.
Sep 9 - 4:02 PM

Michigan redshirt senior RB Ty Isaac rushed for 114 yards on 11 carries in Saturday's 33-17 victory over Florida.

Isaac outplayed starting RB Chris Evans (22 carries for 78 yards), but, to be fair, more of his caries came after Florida's defense had become thoroughly demoralized by the struggles of their sputtering offense. Isaac is a strong backup running back, and that's what he'll remain unless Evans gets hurt.

Land of 10's Kevin Goheen writes that Michigan redshirt senior RB Ty Isaac "has more speed than one might think for a player of his size."

Isaac measures in at 6-foot-3, 225 pounds. Goheen sees him as a perfect complement to sophomore RB Chris Evans, who has a bit more of a cut-and-bolt game than his redshirt senior compatriot. Last season, Isaac rushed for 417 yards and five touchdowns. He doesn't figure to see as many carries as Evans, but should see plenty of work in his own right.

Michigan redshirt senior RB Ty Isaac rushed for 47 yards on five carries in the team's spring game.

Isaac was second on the team in rushing during the spring game, topped only by Karan Higdon (81 yards on 12 carries). The 6-foot-3, 225-pound Isaac turned in 417 rushing yards and five touchdowns last season. Both Higdon and Isaac will be working in rotation behind expected starter Chris Evans during the coming season. Kareem Walker -- who was plagued by academic issues as a freshman in 2016 -- and true freshman backs O'Maury Samuels and Kurt Taylor could also work their way into the mix.

Michigan redshirt junior RB Ty Isaac indicated that he was humbled by his experience in 2015.

Isaac lost out on the starting job to De'Veon Smith early in the 2015 season, then found himself off the depth chart altogether in November due to an "internal matter" (per Mr. Cryptic, Jim Harbaugh). The 6-foot-3, 225-pounder's motivated to come on strong for 2016. He's lost 10 pounds and is hopeful that the new-found lightness of being will help him to avoid nagging leg injuries. Michigan has a deep stable of running backs behind Smith, but that doesn't concern Isaac, who said, "You've just got to be good at your skill set and be consistent. I think that's the biggest thing. Anybody who can be consistent and make plays they'll be able to take the spot."

Michigan redshirt sophomore RB Ty Isaac is not listed on the school's depth chart.

Head coach Jim Harbaugh called it an "internal matter," so we can conclude this is some kind of punishment or suspension. Isaac did not play against Minnesota and has barely seen the field when available.

Michigan redshirt sophomore RB Ty Isaac rushed for 114 yards and a touchdown on eight carries in the school's 28-7 win over UNLV.

De'Veon Smith, who starred in the school's last outing, saw the most carries with 13 but could only manage 33 yards with a long carry of six yards. Isaac, however, recorded a 76 yard score. Jim Harbaugh best chance at offensive success in year one is to run the football

Michigan redshirt freshman RB Ty Isaac will sit out this season after his immediate eligibility waiver appeal was denied by the NCAA.

The NCAA first told Austin in late August that he couldn't play. The running back appealed the decision, which also fell on deaf ears. "He’s handled it great," Wolverines coach Brady Hoke said. "He’s our scout running back, one of the two guys who fill that role and he had a great day yesterday. From an attitude standpoint and everything, he’s been awesome." Isaac, who will have three years of eligibility remaining beginning in 2015, rushed for 236 yards and a touchdown on 40 carries as a freshman at USC in 2013.

Michigan redshirt freshman RB Ty Isaac's appeal for immediately eligibility was denied by the NCAA last week.

Michigan is appealing the ruling. Isaac transferred from USC after spending just one season there. His waiver was applied for on the grounds of being closer to Isaac's ailing mother. He rushed for 236 yards on 40 carries and two touchdowns last season.

Former USC sophomore RB Ty Isaac transferred to Michigan.

Wolverines coach Brady Hoke believes Isaac's hardship waiver will be granted due to the ailing nature of his mother's health. The former Illinois prep superstar could share carries with Derrek Green and De'Veon Smith this season if the NCAA grants his request. Isaac, who rushed for 236 yards on 40 carries and two touchdowns last season, was buried on Steve Sarkisian's depth chart at USC.

Former USC sophomore RB Ty Isaac reportedly committed to join Michigan on a visit this week, according CBS Sports' Jeremy Fowler.

Under normal transfer rules, Isaac would most likely have to sit out the 2014 season for the Wolverines before being able to play again in 2015. However, Isaac is applying for a hardship waiver, since he would like to play closer to his mother who is ill. If all goes well with Isaac's hardship waiver application, Michigan could have a backfield loaded with talent with Isaac, Derrick Green and De'Veon Smith also in the mix for the 2014 season.

Former USC sophomore RB Ty Isaac will visit Michigan and Illinois, according to ESPN's Tom VanHaaren.

VanHaaren received the news from Isaac's mother. The running back's intention is to transfer closer to home, which is the state of Illinois. He will likely have to sit out a season once finding a landing spot, however, Isaac will seek instant eligibility. Isaac rushed for 236 yards on 40 carries and two touchdowns last season.

USC has released sophomore RB Ty Isaac from his scholarship and he plans on transferring to a school closer to home.

Isaac is from Illinois and will likely have to sit out a season to satisfy NCAA transfer regulations. He ran for 236 yards on 40 carries (5.9 avg) with two touchdowns last season. Isaac would likely run behind Javorius Allen and Tre Madden.
