STORY: 5th year senior Jeremy Gallon broke the U-M single-season receiving yards record against KSU.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Jeremy Gallon’s record-setting moment was bittersweet to say the least.

The fifth-year senior went into the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl only needing 47-yards to pass Braylon Edwards Michigan single-season receiving yards record of 1,330 yards setback in 2004.

And with the record within reach late in the fourth quarter, Gallon passed Edwards on 22 yard reception from freshman quarterback Shane Morris. Gallon would finish the night with nine catches for 89 yards, capping his historical season with 1,342 yards receiving. He would lead all U-M receivers with nine touchdown catches on the season.

But despite the record setting season, Gallon had little to say about his historic night after Michigan’s 31-14 loss to KSU.

“Yeah, disappointing game,” Gallon said. “I mean, the record right now don't mean anything without a win, especially with these guys.”

Michigan went into the contest as seven-point underdogs, specifically because starting quarterback Devin Gardner was out with a turf toe injury. The Wolverines were forced to start freshman Morris, who had positive first start of his career, finishing with 196 yards passing on 24-of-38 passes with one interception.

“With that being said, I feel like Shane held his own,” Gallon said. “You know, we didn't play the way we was supposed to or the way we prepared all this week.”

On the night, Gallon broke two Michigan records, he also became the first U-M receiver with a catch in 39 straight games, breaking Edwards career record of 38.
