ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Michigan has taken a step back for a second straight season under coach Brady Hoke.
The Wolverines were defeated by Kansas State 33-17 Saturday night in the Buffalo Wings Bowl, losing their sixth game in an eight-game stretch that left them barely over .500 in Hoke's third year.
Michigan won seven games this season after winning eight last year and 11 in Hoke's debut season with the storied program in 2011.
The Wolverines will try to bounce back next year without offensive tackles, Taylor Lewan and Michael Schofield, receivers Jeremy Gallon and Drew Dileo and running back Fitzgerald Toussaint. Defensive tackles Jibreel Black and Quinton Washington, safeties Thomas Gordon and Courtney Avery and kicker Brendan Gibbons are also out of eligibility.
