IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Michigan's players and coaches had said since the bye week that more freshmen would find their way into playing time.

On Saturday, that showed early. Two freshmen -- cornerback Blake Countess and linebacker Desmond Morgan -- started the game on defense. Two others, defensive lineman Frank Clark and linebacker Brennen Beyer, played often during the game's first two drives.

Beyer, in particular, played the majority of the first half on defense -- often in place of redshirt freshman Jake Ryan.
