Kansas State defeats Michigan, 31-14

See also

Due largely to a solid passing game, the Kansas State Wildcats defeated the Michigan Wolverines, 31-14, on Saturday in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, played at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Arizona. With the victory, the Wildcats ended their college football season at 8-5 overall, and with the loss the Wolverines finished at 7-6.

A foot injury to starting quarterback Devin Gardner meant that Michigan was forced to go with Shane Morris as their signal caller. A true freshman, Morris performed well under the circumstances, as he connected on 24 of his 38 passes for 196 yards. Unfortunately for the Wolverines, Morris was unable to make any of those throws count for touchdowns.

His opposite number, Jake Waters, had no such issues, as the junior QB completed 21 of 27 passes for 271 yards and three TDs. All of Waters' scoring strikes went to junior wide receiver Tyler Lockett, who hauled in 10 passes on the night for 116 yards.

A bright spot for U-M was senior wide receiver Jeremy Gallon, who in his final game for the Maize and Blue had 9 catches for 89 yards. In the process, Gallon set a Michigan record with 1,373 receiving yards for the season, surpassing Braylon Edwards' 2004 mark of 1,330 yards.
