ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Michigan defensive tackle Will Campbell wishes he was wrapping up a fourth season with coach Brady Hoke.

Two years, though, have been better than none for Campbell.

He came to campus during the Rich Rodriguez era and is finishing up under Hoke. Campbell and the other fourth-year players were one game under .500 during their first two seasons and have a combined 18-5 record this year and last.

The 23rd-ranked Wolverines (7-3, 5-1 Big Ten) hope to 23 seniors out with a win against Iowa (4-6, 2-4) in their home finale Saturday.

After losing four straight, Iowa needs to beat Michigan and then Nebraska to qualify for a bowl.
