Tucker Vasher (left) and Tyler Vasher (right) befriended Michigan cornerback Jourdan Lewis through Twitter and hosted the All-American senior on a visit to Harrison, Mich., in April.

Jourdan Lewis only has so many spare weekends, and yet here he was, in a two-stoplight town with a population of just about 2,100, pulling into a Dairy Queen.

Mike McCray, who missed all of 2015 with an injury, was Michigan's most valuable player on defense according to Jim Harbaugh.

In the Wolverines’ second straight home game, they will likely have another field day against the Knights.

Channing Stribling was one of two Michigan defensive backs to return an interception for a touchdown Saturday against Hawaii.

Who’s still hurt, who’s not and who fills in?

Freshman Rashan Gary could make his first career start in Taco Charlton’s absence.

The Knights are in the middle of a rebuild under coach Scott Frost, and Michigan will provide a stern test of their progress.

Wilton Speight impressed passing game coordinator Jedd Fisch with his first performance as the starter.

After seeing Wilton Speight start for the first time Saturday, passing game coordinator Jedd Fisch is happy with his quarterback decision, saying that he couldn’t have asked for too much better.

Jabrill Peppers was happy with his first performance in Don Brown's new defense.

Peppers opened 2016 with a tackle for loss on the first play from scrimmage, and logic suggests there will be more tone-setting plays to come.

Michael Onwenu has already contributed on both sides of the ball for Michigan as a freshman.

Weighing in at 375 pounds — and looking every bit of it up close — Onwenu is the biggest player on the Michigan football team, and not by a small margin.

Ryan Glasgow caused havoc in the backfield in his return from a season-ending pectoral injury last year.

Two years have passed, but Glasgow still sometimes hears the boos coming from the seats at Michigan Stadium during the disastrous 2014 season.

Grant Newsome has settled into his new role as the starting left tackle.

In Saturday’s 63-3 win over Hawaii, Newsome started after a steady competition at left tackle throughout fall camp.

Warde Manuel was too busy to enjoy part of his first game day as athletic director.

Warde Manuel's first game day as athletic director kept him moving all morning.
