In our latest Michigan Wolverines news roundup, the hockey team wins its fourth straight, Michigan football players are set to participate in the Senior Bowl, and more. 

It’s not the same as the regular season, but if Michigan football fans are jonesing for some action and want to see some former Michigan Wolverines playing they can tune into the Senior Bowl.

The annual college football all-star game which is always swarming with NFL scouts has three Michigan football players in attendance this week in wide receiver Ronnie Bell, offensive tackle Ryan Hayes and center Olu Oluwatimi.

Bell has been making an impression this week and so has Ryan Hayes. Both had some impressive highlights and I expect all three Michigan football players to be drafted in the 2023 NFL draft.

Bell had an excellent bounce-back season after missing nearly all of 2021 with a knee injury. He led Michigan football in receptions (62) and yards (889) and caught four touchdowns. Oluwatimi was the Rimington Award winner and Hayes once again earned All-Big Ten honors.

The Senior Bowl kicks off at 12:30 PM EST in Mobile and here’s how to watch.

Michigan wrestling drops ranked dual with Oklahoma State

The Michigan Wolverines stepped out of the Big Ten conference for a wrestling dual with No. 11 Oklahoma State on Friday night and U-M was defeated 24-15.

In some good news though, No. 1 heavyweight Mason Parris continued his unbeaten season and notched a 22nd win thanks to a 5-3 decision.

It was a the third dual loss to the season for the Michigan wrestling team which came into the matchup ranked sixth.
