By the numbers: Receivers making history

With two games remaining in the regular season and a bowl game, Jeremy Gallon and Devin Funchess have a shot to produce the most prolific receiving campaign a pair of U-M teammates has ever achieved.

  • Gallon (1,062 yards) and Funchess (684 yards) have combined for 1,746 yards this season. That total ranks as the sixth best in Michigan history, and the most since 2007, when Mario Manningham and Adrian Arrington became the first teammates to combine for 2,000 yards receiving (2,056).

  • Averaging 174.6 yards per contest, Gallon and Funchess are on pace for 2,270 yards, which would shatter the current record.

  • Both Gallon and Funchess have a chance to make history as individuals. Gallon is on pace for 1,381 yards, which would better Braylon Edwards' single-season mark of 1,330 in 2004. Funchess is on pace for 889 yards, which would represent the best tally ever by a No. 2 receiver, eclipsing Arrington's 882 yards in 2007.
