Jim Harbaugh, Michigan Wolverines name QB John O'Korn as starter

Wilton Speight is going to be out for the foreseeable future.

Backup quarterback John O'Korn will fill in as starter, including for this weekend's rivalry game against Michigan State in Ann Arbor.

MI quarterback Wilton Speight is expected to miss "multiple weeks" due to an undisclosed injury, Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh announced Monday.

Speight suffered an undisclosed upper-body injury in Michigan's September 23 win over Purdue. True freshman Dylan McCaffrey will be the third-string QB.

Speight was sacked September 23 by Purdue's Markus Bailey and took another hit from Eddy Wilson with 5:06 to go in the first quarter.

Stars Play-by-Play Announcer Dave Strader Dies
Known as "The Voice", Strader received the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award from the Hockey Hall of Fame earlier this year. The play-by-play announcer for the team had been battling cholangiocarcinoma, a rare and aggressive type of cancer.

The No. 7 Wolverines face Michigan State at home on October 7, and then they hit the road for two straight weeks to face IN followed by No. 4 Penn State.

O'Korn will at least start the Michigan State game for the Wolverines and likely several more this year. O'Korn replaced Speight and finished the 28-10 victory, completing 18 of 26 passes for 270 yards, with one touchdown and one interception. He lost his starting role to Greg Ward as a sophomore and chose to transfer.

Once Speight left the game, O'Korn took over. He has thrown for 581 yards and three touchdowns against two interceptions in his first four starts.

Michigan, 4-0 on the season, is ranked No. 7 nationally.
