SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) _ Michigan freshman quarterback Shane Morris will start in place of Devin Gardner in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl.
Gardner sustained a turf toe injury in the Wolverines' final regular-season game against Ohio State and showed up in Arizona wearing a protective boot.
Coach Brady Hoke announced Thursday that Morris will make his first college start against Kansas State after Gardner was unable to practice Wednesday.
Morris played in three games this season, attempting nine passes. He sat out most of his senior season in high school because of mononucleosis.
As a result of Gardner's injury, Morris has worked with Michigan's first-team offense leading up to Saturday night's bowl game in Tempe.
