LYNCHBURG, Va. -- Running back Brendon Riddick's scored three touchdowns and Norfolk State's fourth-quarter fumble recovery helped the Spartans beat Liberty 31-24 Saturday night.
Riddick, who had 150 yards rushing, and Norfolk State's special teams sparked the Spartans' second-half comeback.
The running back scored on a 10-yard touchdown run cut the deficit to 17-13. An 83-yard punt return for a touchdown by Keith Johnson gave Norfolk State its first lead.
But Liberty answered with a great special teams play of its own: Kevin Fogg ripped off a 77-yard punt return as the Flames recaptured the lead 24-19.
Then it was Riddick's turn again. His 10-yard put Norfolk State back up 25-24. The Spartans sealed the victory with 3:30 left when Marcell Coke returned a fumble 41 yards for a touchdown.
Coaching staffs are bracing for a frenzy of activity on the recruiting trail thanks to all the turnover at the top.
