TAMPA, Fla. -

No. 19 Michigan has been invited to represent the Big Ten in the Outback Bowl against a Southeastern Conference opponent to be announced later Sunday.
   Outback Bowl chairman Mike Kerrigan says the Wolverines (8-4) are an exciting team with "exceptional talent." The New Year's Day game gets the third pick of participants from the Big Ten and SEC.
   Coach Brady Hoke's team went 6-2 in the Big Ten, losing on the road to Nebraska and Ohio State. Michigan's other losses came to the teams that will play for the national title -- top-ranked Notre Dame and No. 2 Alabama.
