ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Fifth year senior wide receiver Jehu Chesson knows what it like to win or lose in the Michigan-Michigan State rivalry game.
He was a redshirt freshman in 2012, which happen to be last time the Wolverines tasted a victory against MSU. He has also tasted defeat the past two years in East Lansing. So he knows the importance of the in-state rivalry game.
However, when asked if this was a redemption game for the Wolverines? Chesson downplayed the question, saying this was another “opportunity” for U-M to have success on the field this season.
“In terms of redemption, I don’t really look at it like that,” Chesson said about the importance of beating Michigan State. “I just look at it as another opportunity to go up and put points on the board. We have a great offense (and) we have a great defense. I think we really have something special. They obviously have something special there in East Lansing; it’s going to be a great game. Both teams are going to be well prepared. It’s going to be a physical game, we’re going to have fun playing.”
Will see if it’s just another game later today, when No. 12 Michigan (5-1) plays host to No. 7 MSU (6-0) at 3:30 pm.
