Notre Dame’s Theo Riddick Breaks out, Robert Hughes Next?


Sophomore WR Theo Riddick entered Notre Dame’s game vs. Michigan State with just four receptions for 52 yards, but finished the contest with a career-high 10 catches for 128 yards and one touchdown. Riddick registered his first career 100-yard receiving game as he posted two grabs for 42 yards on Notre Dame’s opening scoring drive of the second half.

He hauled in a 15-yard touchdown pass from QB Dayne Crist with 1:29 to go in the third quarter to tie the score, 21-21. The reception was Riddick’s first career touchdown. A converted tailback, Riddick has a lot of speed and tackle-shedding ability. As in next level ability regarding both qualities.

“He’s worked really hard. It was really just a matter of time before he was going to be able to play at the level that we thought he could play at,” Coach Brian Kelly said.
