Bowl betting: Michigan to start true freshman

Dec 27, 2013 |
Michigan will start true freshman Shane Morrris in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl in place for starter Devin Gardner, who will not play due to a broken foot.

Michigan (7-5 ATS) opened as 3-point dogs to Kansas State (7-5 ATS) and were bet to +4.5. The news of the change at quarterback caused another line jump and the Wolverines are now 5.5-point dogs heading into Saturday's macthup.

Gardner was on crutches when Michigan, who has lost four of its last five games, left Ann Arbor for Phoenix. Gardner suffered the injury in the regular season finale against Ohio State.

Morris has attempted nine passes in two games this season, completing five of them.
