Riddle continues to be up to his old tricks – throwing 300 yard games with lots of touchdowns. He whizzed through his first two games against Davidson (56-0, 326 yards, 4 TDs) and Presbyterian (41-7, 346 yards, 4 TDs) setting even more Southern Conference records along the way.
Riddle hit a bump in the road when the D1AA Phoenix travelled up the road to Winston-Salem for a game against Wake Forest. Elon got throttled 35-7, but you can’t pin the poor showing on Riddle. While he didn’t light it up, he was a rock-solid 24 if 43 for 195 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions.
Back in the SoCon for the next game, Riddle threw for 338 yards and a touchdown in a 28-14 win over Georgia Southern. In a come from behind victory over Furman (19-12), Riddle tossed the pigskin for 374 yards and a touchdown.
For the year, that’s a 4-1 record and 131 for 201 for 1,579 yards and 11 touchdowns against TWO interceptions. That’s an average of 315 yards a game.
Nice, Scott, NICE!
