Pac-12 Football Players of the Week – Week 5

OFFENSIVE: Bryce Love, Jr., RB, Stanford
• Set Stanford’s single-game rushing record with 301 yards, tied for eighth-most in Pac-12 history.
• Averaged 12.0 yards on his 25 carries and had a career-high three touchdown runs which went for 61, 43 and 59 yards.
• In the last 20 years, Love and USC’s Reggie Bush are the only players with back-to-back 250-yard rushing games. Stanford had just one game with a 250-yard rusher in the program’s first 1,254 contests — Love has now reached that mark in back-to-back games.
• Has also rushed for 100 yards in seven consecutive games (second-longest streak in school history), and is the only player in the last 20 years with a rush of 50 or more yards in seven straight games.
