(AP) — Trey Burke and Michigan can put aside for now the idea of being ranked No. 1 in the country.

An undefeated start to the season? That’s over too after the Wolverines sputtered last weekend at Ohio State.

Now, the focus is on a Big Ten schedule that will test Burke and his teammates plenty more over the next few weeks. No. 5 Michigan plays at No. 9 Minnesota on Thursday night, part of a nine-game stretch for the Wolverines that began with the loss to the Buckeyes and will eventually include six road games.

“The level of intensity that we had in practice (Tuesday) was very high,” said Burke, Michigan’s star point guard. “We know just from watching film that we had a lot to learn, a lot to get better, a lot of adjustments to make.”
