ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan defensive end Kwity Paye has decided to return for his senior season. Payne announced his plans with an Instagram post Thursday night, ending speculation he might enter the NFL Draft.

He led the Wolverines with 12 1/2 tackles for losses and was second on the team with 6 1/2 sacks during the regular season.

Paye was voted second-team All-Big Ten by conference coaches. The 17th-ranked Wolverines will play No. 9 Alabama on Jan. 1 in the Citrus Bowl.
