Elon QB Riddle on verge of SoCon record

Elon, NC (Sports Network) - Elon senior quarterback Scott Riddle will become the Southern Conference's all-time leader in passing yardage if he throws for 79 yards against Division II Shaw on Saturday.

Riddle, the active passing leader at the FCS level, enters the game with 10,314 passing yards. Appalachian State star Armanti Edwards finished his career last season with 10,392 passing yards.

Riddle already owns the SoCon's all-time records for completions (916), pass attempts (1,416) and touchdown passes (79). He has led the league in passing yards three times, something also accomplished only by Marshall standout Michael Payton from 1990-92.
