Junior running back and human biology major BRYCE LOVE bolstered his candidacy for the Heisman Trophy on Friday when he rushed for 166 yards and a career-high three touchdowns. His performance helped the Cardinal beat No. 9 Washington.

Love’s play also drew more attention nationwide to his remarkable season thus far. Love, for instance, is leading the nation with nine yards per carry. On Monday, Nov. 13, he was named the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week.

The Heisman Memorial Trophy is awarded annually to the most outstanding player in college football in the United States whose performance best exhibits the pursuit of excellence with integrity. In 1970, Cardinal quarterback JIM PLUNKETT won the award. Recent Cardinal candidates have included CHRISTIAN MCCAFFREY and ANDREW LUCK.

Stanford Athletics offers a website that chronicles Love’s achievements, including 1,622 rushing yards, 180 yards per game, 8.9 yards per carry and 11 touchdowns of 50 plus yards.

Equally impressive is Love’s character. He aspires to become a pediatrician and to help children in under-served communities.
