Stanford's Love is top offensive player of week in Pac-12


Stanford junior running back Bryce Love was named Pac-12 Conference Offensive Football Player of the Week on Monday.

Love had 263 yards rushing on 30 attempts, both career highs, in Stanford's 58-34 home win over UCLA. He added one rushing touchdown. Love's single-game rushing total was the second-highest in program history.

In his past six outings, Love has 1,016 yards rushing on 101 carries (10.1 yards/rush).

Through four games this season, Love has 787 yards rushing on 73 attempts. In the past 20 years, only LSU's Leonard Fournette (864 yards on 99 attempts) and Northern Illinois' Garrett Wolfe (828 yards on 96 attempts) had more.

Stanford's 405 rushing yards against UCLA (Sept. 23) were the fourth-most in program history. Stanford was the first team to rush for over 400 yards against UCLA since USC did so in 2005.

Love ranks first nationally with 196.8 rushing yards/game. He ranks second among Pac-12 players with 198 all-purpose yards/game.
