WATCH: Bryce Love breaks Stanford record with 301 rushing yards vs. Arizona State

Stanford-Bryce Love-Arizona State

Stanford’s Bryce Love had the best game of his career on Saturday in Palo Alto as the junior RB rushed for a career-high 301 in the Cardinal’s 34-23 win over Arizona State. Love rushed for 301 yards on 25 carries, an average of 12 yards per carry, and scored 3 times.

Love broke off 3 TDs runs of over 40 yards, including a 61-yard TD in the first quarter. That score extended his school record of consecutive games with a rush over 50 yards. The Stanford RB has also rushed for over 100 yards in seven straight games, which ranks as the second longest streak in school history.

Love also became the quickest Stanford player to 1,000 yards rushing in a season, doing it on only 87 carries. That record was previously held by legendary Stanford back Christian McCaffrey, who gained 1,000 yards on carry No. 163 in 2015. Love came into the contest against Arizona State ranked No. 1 in the country in rushing yards (787) and No. 3 in all-purpose yards (792).

Love is currently on pace for 2,828 rushing yards this season. Barry Sanders’ all-time single season NCAA record for rushing yards is 2,628.

Love ended the game with 1,088 yards on the season, through five games. That is the most rushing yards through five games in college football in the last 20 seasons.

It is pretty clear that Love has thrown his name into the Heisman Trophy conversation.
