Coach Jim Harbaugh said after the game Hill was being evaluated for a concussion. The junior from Detroit has started every game for the Wolverines this season, he’s made 11 tackles, five pass breakups and an interception and is a key cog in the Wolverines’ pass defense, a unit ranked No. 1 nationally.

Sophomore Ambry Thomas also saw extended reps and made his first career interception in the fourth quarter. Elsewhere, Michigan held out starting safety Josh Metellus from Saturday’s win with what Harbaugh declared a “soft tissue” injury. Michigan started New Jersey native Brad Hawkins in his place. Hawkins finished with five tackles. Metellus, Harbaugh said, was available in an emergency situation only. Sophomore defensive tackle Aubrey Solomon did not make the trip due to an illness, while sophomore defensive end Kwity Paye left the game in the second half with what appeared to a right arm injury. He did not return and Harbaugh did not have an immediate update on his health afterward. Contact Nick Baumgardner: [email protected] Follow him on Twitter @nickbaumgardner.
