ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Offensive coordinator Al Borges compared Michigan’s upcoming game with rival Michigan State to a “street fight” on Tuesday at his weekly press conference with the media.

Fifth-year senior wide receiver Jeremy Gallon -- agrees.

“I do understand what he’s coming from,” Gallon said. “It’s going to be a battle. It’s going to be like a street fight. The better man will win and the tougher team will be standing at the end of the game.”

When the Spartans (7-1, 4-0 Big Ten) and Wolverines (6-1, 3-1 Big Ten) meet this Saturday, it will mark the final time Gallon will have an opportunity to beat his in state rival. Michigan defeated MSU 12-10 last season at the Big House.

“Just going out with a bang,” Gallon said. “Just winning for my team and seniors – they deserve it. Just for this to be my last battle with them, it means a lot to me.”

When asked if this game is getting over hyped with both teams “hating” each other?

Gallon replied with a chuckle:

“I don’t hate anybody. I just want to win. I just feel it’s about who wants to win more than the other person. I wouldn’t say I hate anybody. This level of competing is just more higher than anything else.”

But he fully expects this game to be physical.

“For me, it’s fun,” Gallon said. “I like when games get physical. I like when you hear all the trash talking. I just like a physical game. To me, it’s fun. I don’t mind it all.”
