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.
