Riddick rushed for 146 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries in Notre Dame's 22-13 win Saturday night at USC, helping carry the Irish to the BCS national title game. He added 33 yards on three catches as part of his duties as a slot guy, an element the Irish incorporated into their running game this season, one that fits Riddick perfectly, given his history.
