A big part of No. 11 Michigan’s win over No. 21 Notre Dame, senior wide receiver Jeremy Gallon earned Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week for his 184 receiving yards and three touchdowns scored Saturday in the Big House.

ESPN College GameDay came out for the game, the last the teams will play in Ann Arbor for the foreseeable future, and Gallon responded with one of the best receiving performances the Wolverines had seen in years.

According to Michigan’s press release, Gallon’s 184 yards were the sixth-most in Michigan history and the most since 2010, when Roy Roundtree set the school record with 246 receiving yards, and Gallon’s three touchdown grabs were the most since Mario Manningham did the same against the Irish in 2006.
