He shared reps with starter J.T. Barrett in 2017, and helped lift them to a 31-20 win in Ann Arbor.But it was his 2018 performance against Michigan that really caught everyone’s attention.Haskins threw for a record six touchdown passes while completing over 64-percent of his passes en route to a historic 62-39 blowout win.Perhaps beating Haskins’ team was a measure of revenge for Brady over the quarterback that beat his old team.last_img read more
