Robinson, from Bunnell, Fla., led USF with six sacks among his 26 tackles, and his four fumbles caused tied a school record. Two of his sacks led to two crucial fumbles, including Selvie’s touchdown return at West Virginia. Robinson also sealed USF’s win at UCF when he sacked Steven Moffett on a fourth down deep in USF territory in a seven point game.
