Michigan coach Brady Hoke says he doesn't think the team's play-calling was too conservative in the Wolverines' four-overtime loss to Penn State, but he did take the blame for a delay-of-game penalty late in regulation that led to a punt.

The Wolverines lost a 10-point, fourth-quarter lead at Penn State and fell 43-40 on Saturday. On Sunday, Michigan dropped of The Associated Press college football poll.

Hoke expects standout left tackle Taylor Lewan to play Saturday at home against Indiana. Lewan missed the second half at Penn State because of two ailments, including a hip injury.
