Finds no running room in defeat Ridder went 24-for-37 with 206 yards, two touchdowns and a lost fumble in the Peach Bowl defeat to Georgia on Friday.
Impact Even facing a suffocating Georgia defense, there were high hopes for Ridder coming into the bowl game, especially with his rushing production once it was announced that starting running back Gerrid Doaks (leg) would be absent from the contest. Instead, the quarterback ended the game with minus-17 rushing yards and went without a rushing touchdown for the first time since Week 5 against South Florida. Despite the tough finish, the junior quarterback finished with 2,296 passing yards, 19 touchdowns and just six picks in 10 games to lead Cincinnati to an undefeated regular season.
