Heisman Trophy candidate Bryce Love was named Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week on Monday. He joined Toby Gerhart as the only Stanford football players with three such awards in the same season.
Love helped Stanford earn a 30-22 victory over then-No. 9 Washington on Friday night with 166 rushing yards and a career-high three touchdowns.
Love extended his FBS-leading touchdown streak to 11 games, also tying the program record (Gerhart). The nation's leading rusher had scoring runs of 1, 9 and 13 yards, including the eventual game-winner midway through the fourth quarter. His 15 rushing touchdowns this season are the most among Power 5 running backs.
Love finished with more than 140 yards for the eighth time in nine games this year, and totaled a game-high 178 all-purpose yards.
He also moved past Christian McCaffrey for fourth-place on Stanford's single-season rushing list, and is leading the nation with 9.0 yards per carry this season, just off the NCAA record pace of 9.3 set by Houston's Chuck Weatherspoon in 1989.
Love averages a NCAA-best 180.2 rushing yards a game.
