Bryce Love named Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week, ties mark set by Reggie Bush

For the second straight week, Stanford RB Bryce Love has been named the Pac-12’s Offensive Player of the Week. In Stanford’s 34-24 win over Arizona State, Love rushed for a school-record 301 yards and scored 3 touchdowns. All 3 scores were from longer than 40 yards.

There are no shortage of amazing stats that Love has compiled. 7 straight games over 100 yards, 7 straight games with a rush for over 50 yards (the first player to do that in 20 years), a career 50.67 yards per TD on his 12 career scores, 1,000 yards on just 87 carries in 2017. He has been simply remarkable.

However, when someone ties the immortal USC RB Reggie Bush for a record, you know that they’re doing something special.

On Saturday, Love became the first player since Bush to have back-to-back 250-yard rushing games. Love rushed for 263 yards against UCLA on Sep. 23, meaning his two-game total was 564 rushing yards. In 2005, en route to winning his now vacated Heisman Trophy, Bush rushed for 294 yards and 260 yards in back-to-back games against Fresno State and UCLA.

Love is a special player who should be getting more love nationally. He is proving himself to be the best running back in the country, even if no one else is watching.
