In his second collegiate start, Scott Riddle passed for a career-high 362 yards and three touchdowns and Elon exploded for 42 second-half points, propelling the Phoenix to a 59-16 victory over West Virginia Wesleyan Saturday evening at Rhodes Stadium.

Elon’s 59-point outburst marked the program’s most since the Phoenix posted a 59-0 triumph at Morehead State on Oct. 3, 1998. Elon (1-1) last broke the 60-point plateau with a 63-13 home win over Lenoir-Rhyne on August 30, 1997.

Riddle’s 362 aerial yards in three quarters fell just shy of Heath Hewett’s program-record 386 passing yards against Catawba in 1990.

Riddle completed 23 of his 34 passes (.676) while surrendering one interception and two sacks.

Officials at Elon promised to turn the lights up just a little brighter for the next game.
