Ann Arbor – Michigan will have a different look on the left side of the offensive line Saturday against Illinois.

Senior Ben Braden is moving from left guard to left tackle and freshman Ben Bredeson will start at left guard.

Since Grant Newsome suffered a season-ending injury against Wisconsin, Michigan has done some tinkering at left tackle. Juwann Bushell-Beatty started at left tackle against Rutgers two weeks ago, missed a couple plays after being injured, and center Mason Cole moved to left tackle, the position he played the last two seasons.

Bushell-Beatty had been expected to start at left tackle Saturday.
