  12/16/20 - Carlo KempSr/2021, Michigan, 6-2, 286 (DS#28 DT) + More +

  2020 ALL-BIG TEN FOOTBALL HONORABLE MENTION (COACHES): Carlo Kemp,...A two-time team captain, Carlo Kemp earned honorable mention recognition from the Big Ten coaches. Kemp has totaled 21 tackles this season with three tackles for loss and a pair of sacks. When ends Aidan Hutchinson and Paye went down with injuries, Kemp slid outside from his interior position and has made several starts on the edge. Kemp has appeared in 46 career contests and was an All-Big Ten pick by the coaches last fall (third team), making this his second all-conference recognition. - Michigan Football

  2020 ALL-BIG TEN FOOTBALL HONORABLE MENTION (COACHES): Kwity Paye,...Paye has appeared in four games this season, missing two due to injury. In those four contests, he has totaled 16 tackles (12 solo) with four tackles for loss and a pair of sacks. An All-Big Ten second team (coaches) and third team (media) selection in 2019, Paye was voted as a captain by his teammates prior to the start of the 2020 season. He has been a leader and anchor for the U-M front seven, and the Wolverine defense plays differently with him on the season. - Michigan Football

  2020 ALL-BIG TEN FOOTBALL HONORABLE MENTION (COACHES): Andrew Stueber,...Stueber has been part of an offensive line that has helped pave the way for some of Haskins' big games. A veteran voice, Stueber provided stability and critical leadership along the offensive line. He began the season at right guard, but kicked out for starts at right tackle through the last four weeks. Stueber returned this season after suffering an ACL injury in training camp leading up to the 2019 campaign. After an offseason of rehab, he came back to be an anchor for the Wolverines up front this season. This marks the first conference honor of Stueber's career. - Michigan Football

  2020 ALL-BIG TEN FOOTBALL HONORABLE MENTION (COACHES): Hassan Haskins,...Haskins leads the Michigan backfield with 375 yards on 61 carries. He has averaged 6.1 yards per rush, with just five negative yards all season and a team-high six touchdowns. Haskins has been a downhill bruiser for the Wolverines. Heading into the Big Ten Championship Weekend, he is coming off consecutive 100-yard performances against Rutgers (109 yards) and Penn State (101 yards) and needs just three rush yards to reach 1,000 in his career. - Michigan Football

  Cade McNamara earned his first career start but injured his shoulder on Michigan's touchdown drive in the first quarter. He missed a few series before returning to the game but struggled when he came back. Michigan didn't take many shots down field, and McNamara wasn't even efficient on short passes. He threw for just 91 yards on 12-of-25 passing. The offense also sputtered when Joe Milton was in the game. He only attempted three passes and completed one for 21 yards. He also was stopped short on a QB sneak on fourth-and-1. - Ann Arbor News

  Offensive line coach Ed Warinner said Wednesday that Mayfield was back practicing, but the redshirt sophomore still missed his fourth straight game Saturday. Remember, Mayfield was one of three Michigan players who initially opted out before the season. With just three games remaining in 2020, he could decide to sit out the rest of the year even if healthy to not risk another injury. - Ann Arbor News

  11/27/20 - Donovan JeterrJr/2022, Michigan, 6-2, 318 (DS#13 DT) + More +

  Donovan Jeter saw action in 10 games last season, but one stands out above the rest. The redshirt junior tackle was part of a Michigan defensive line that gave up 359 rushing yards in a lopsided loss to Wisconsin in 2019, a game that helped dash the Wolverines' Big Ten title hopes and prompted self-reflection from coaches and players. Jeter included, who candidly told reporters on Tuesday that he "played horribly" in that game. "That kind of affected my mindset throughout the rest of the year," Jeter said. "I didn't really get back into myself until right around the bowl game, Alabama, honestly. I told myself after that game, 'I'm never going to have that feeling last year." That feeling, Jeter said, that he could have done more. It was the most rushing yards allowed by a Michigan team in three years - and set the stage for what became a season of disappointment, with the Wolverines going 9-4 despite having an experienced team, playmakers on both sides of the ball and 10 future NFL draft picks.

"Lack of physicality," Jeter said. "Left a lot of plays out there. My technique was horrible. It was a multitude of things. After the season, I went back and just worked." Which might explain Jeter's offseason transformation. He spent most of the spring and summer at home in Beaver Falls, Pa., where be benefitted during the COVID-19 pandemic with regular home-cooked meals from his mother, workout equipment in the basement and a track down the street. The result? A more dedicated, and bulkier, Jeter. He's listed at 6-foot-3 and 318 pounds this year, up 28 pounds from last season, and earned rave reviews from coaches and teammates for his work ethic in camp. "It was definitely different training at home, training in the basement," Jeter said. "It felt like I was back in high school again. "But I think it was a huge plus for me to get back to the basics and just work hard." - Ann Arbor News

  11/27/20 - *Jalen MayfieldrSo/2021, Michigan, 6-5, 320 (DS#6 OT) + More +

  There's a chance that the Michigan football team gets two of its starting offensive linemen back this weekend against Penn State. Tackles Ryan Hayes and Jalen Mayfield are back practicing this week and could be available for Saturday's game in Ann Arbor (noon, ABC), position coach Ed Warinner told reporters on Wednesday. "They're both practicing, so we're just seeing how quickly they can come back," Warinner said. "They're bot out there doing practice reps, so it's good to see them out there. I won't say anything other than that - but they are not in the training room during practice."

Warinner added that Hayes and Mayfield - sidelined the last three games with undisclosed lower-body injuries - are "on the field, in gear and working out." "We're moving them along, and they want to get back as quickly as they can," Warinner said. "So, we'll see what that is. Both - or one - might be available Saturday." In their absence, Michigan has started redshirt freshman Karsen Barnhart at left tackle, moved redshirt junior Andrew Stueber out to right tackle and started true freshman Zak Zinter at right guard. - Ann Arbor News

  11/27/20 - Erick AllSo/2023, Michigan, 6-4, 242 (DS#7 TE) + More +

  Michigan's Erick All has his confidence back. The sophomore tight end nearly had as many dropped passes (four) than receptions (five) in the first three games of the season. But All has gone two games since without a drop and has six catches during that span, including four for 27 yards in Saturday's 48-42 triple-overtime victory over Rutgers. "Obviously, it was irritating dropping the ball," All told reporters Monday. "I don't even know why I was dropping it, but it was irritating because I knew how good of hands I had. I just felt like I just needed to trust myself, and once I found that trust in the Rutgers game, I felt confident. I felt like a new person took over me. I just felt like I had a different energy and it just made me a better player for this team."

On Nov. 11, tight ends coach Sherrone Moore said All was making "spectacular" catches regularly during practice but felt the former four-star prospect from Ohio was overthinking during games. All had a drop that would have been an easy touchdown in Michigan's opener and also had a costly one on third down against Indiana in Week 3. "After I dropped the first ball in the Minnesota game, I think it was just in my head," All said. "Thank god it's out because, man, I was down for a little bit." - Ann Arbor News

  11/26/20 - Kwity PayeSr/2021, Michigan, 6-3, 272 (DS#3 DE) + More +

  Michigan continues to rotate a few defensive linemen in the absence of its two star defensive ends Aidan Hutchinson and Kwity Paye. Hutchinson is out for the season with a lower-leg injury, while Paye missed his second straight game last Saturday and is out indefinitely. "Questionable is a word everybody understands," Harbaugh said of the injured group. "As of Monday, guys are still working through things, and we'll see where we are later in the week." Harbaugh isn't scheduled to talk with reporters the rest of the week, so any further updates likely won't come until just before Saturday's kickoff. Asked Monday about McGrone and Hawkins specifically, Harbaugh said, "We have some updates. Nothing to release at this time." - Ann Arbor News

  11/26/20 - Joe MiltonrSo/2023, Michigan, 6-4, 243 (DS#15 QB) + More +

  Michigan's top two coaches did their best to show public confidence in Joe Milton this week, even after the struggling quarterback was pulled from the game against Rutgers over the weekend. Jim Harbaugh, appearing on the "Inside Michigan Football" radio show Monday night, declined a second opportunity to name a starter for Saturday's upcoming game against Penn State (noon, ABC). Instead, Harbaugh used some of his time to defend Milton - who completed three of his four pass attempts, and even hit receiver Giles Jackson on a 31-yard completion early in the second quarter. "I thought he was playing good," Harbaugh said. "We hadn't gotten on the scoreboard yet and wanted to get Cade (McNamara) an opportunity - a shot at it - as well."

But it seemed like every drive came with trouble. Receiver Cornelius Johnson fumbled the football away after catching an 18-yard pass on Michigan's first drive of the game, then Milton failed to pick up the necessary yardage on a fourth-and-1 play on the next drive. The Wolverines went three-and-out on their third drive, then had to settle for a 49-yard field goal by Quinn Nordin (that he missed) after Giles Jackson failed to come up with a third-down catch down the left sideline. Milton was 5 of 12 for 89 yards before coming out of the game for McNamara, a redshirt freshman, with Michigan already trailing 17-0. "There was nothing that Joe did wrong, or wasn't doing well," Harbaugh said. "(We) had the idea of both of them playing. And Cade came in and he got pretty darn hot." - Ann Arbor News

  11/26/20 - Hassan HaskinsJr/2022, Michigan, 6-0, 220 (DS#22 RB) + More +

  The redshirt sophomore entered Saturday leading the team in rushing but received just one carry in Week 4 against Wisconsin. While the Wolverines' run game got off to a slow start against Rutgers, they remained committed to it and were rewarded in the second half. Instead of frequently rotating the backs like the in previous four games, Haskins handled the bulk of the load, finishing with 110 rushing yards and the game-winning touchdowns on 22 attempts. No other running back had more than six, although Blake Corum, Chris Evans and Zach Charbonnet each had at least one reception.

Haskins has proven to be a receiving threat out of the backfield, which was probably the reason why he didn't see many snaps after Michigan fell behind early against Wisconsin, but he has clearly been the most effective runner of the quartet through the first five games. "His play, talk about heart," Harbaugh said. "The amount of runs that Hassan had that were yards after contact this game -- tough, efficient, outstanding runs. Just tremendous." While Haskins was impressive Saturday, it still seems likely Corum, Evans and Charbonnet will still see snaps in passing situations, but we should see more of Haskins moving forward. - Ann Arbor News

  11/24/20 - Cade McNamararFr/2024, Michigan, 6-1, 205 (DS#8 QB) + More +

  Cade McNamara doesn't decide who should start at quarterback for Michigan; head coach Jim Harbaugh does. But McNamara has made the decision difficult or obvious, depending on how you look at it. McNamara, the backup quarterback to Joe Milton, took over late in the second quarter, resuscitated Michigan's offense after it trailed 17-0, and led the team to a 48-42, triple-overtime victory over Rutgers at SHI Stadium Saturday night. Michigan is now 2-3 and ended a three-game losing streak. Milton has started all five games this season. McNamara, who also gave Michigan a spark in the loss to Wisconsin and led the Wolverines to their only touchdown in that game, was asked if he feels he should now lead this team as starter.

"Personally, I feel like I've done enough for me to be put in that position," McNamara said. "That's coach Harbaugh's decision. Whatever's best for the team, that's coach Harbaugh's decision, but I feel like I'm confident enough in myself that if my number is called again, that I perform the same way." McNamara was 27-of-36 for 260 yards and four touchdowns. He also ran for a 2-yard touchdown in the second overtime. He threw two touchdowns to Cornelius Johnson, one to tight end Nick Eubanks and another to Mike Sainristil. For the season, McNamara is 31-of-46 for 334 yards and five touchdowns with no interceptions. "Cade was outstanding," Harbaugh said. "Really gritty performance in all ways. His play was inspiring. Can't say enough great things. So proud of him." - Detroit News

  Hassan Haskins dove in from less than a yard out on fourth down in the third overtime and Michigan outlasted Rutgers 48-42 on Saturday night, avoiding its worst start in 53 years. Sophomore Cade McNamara came off the bench and threw four touchdown passes and ran for another as Michigan (2-3, 2-3 Big Ten) snapped a three-game losing streak and handed Rutgers (1-4, 1-4) its fourth straight loss. Michigan missed the 2-point conversion after Haskins' touchdown, but safety Daxton Hill intercepted Noah Vedral's desperation heave into the end zone from the 24-yard line to end the game that lasted 4 1/2 hours.

Vedral threw an 11-yard, fourth-down touchdown pass to Aron Cruickshank and then carried two defenders into the end zone on the 2-point conversion run to tie the game at 35 and force the extra sessions. Both teams missed field goals on the first possession of overtime. Vedral threw a 25-yard yard touchdown pass to tight end Jovani Haskins to put Rutgers ahead 42-35, but McNamara scored on a 2-yard run to tie the game. McNamara replaced junior Joe Milton for the second straight week and finished 27 of 36 for 260 yards. The sophomore had TD passes of 46 and 9 yards to Cornelius Johnson, 8-yards to Nick Eubanks and a 6-yarder to Mike Sainristil. - Michigan/AP College Football
