Stanford redshirt sophomore RB Cameron Scarlett ran for 86 yards and three touchdowns on eight carries in a 58-34 win over UCLA.

Whatever you say about the Stanford program, you certainly can't say that they don't do a good job of recruiting and developing running backs. It's the second three touchdown game of the year for Scarlett (6-1/213), with all three of his scores coming from inside the five yard line. Bryce Love is the clear bell-cow in Palo Alto, but Scarlett looks like a very competent backup.

Stanford redshirt freshman QB K.J. Costello was 13-for-19 passing for 123 yards and two touchdowns in a 58-34 victory over UCLA on Saturday.

Costello (6'5/216) was the third quarterback to come in for the Cardinal after Keller Chryst and Ryan Burns, and he was by far the most effective. A four-star recruit in 2016, the redshirt freshman quarterback showed quality arm strength and at times some impressive touch. His first touchdown was a 15-yard strike to Trent Erwin to give Stanford a 30-20 lead. Touchdown No.2 was an eight-yard touchdown to Dalton Schultz to extend the lead to 44-27 with just under nine minutes left. It remains to be seen how much run Costello will get going forward, but based on what he showed tonight, he's a very competent third-string quarterback at worst.

Stanford redshirt sophomore Bryce Love ran for 263 yards and a touchdown in a 58-34 throttling of UCLA on Saturday.

We don't like to be too hyperbolic on these reports, but it's starting to look like UCLA's run defense may not be very good after giving up 405 yards on the ground tonight. That's taking nothing away from Love (5'10/186) however, as the speedy back was impressive with his ability to find holes and then run away from the Bruins defenders. His only touchdown was a nice 69-yarder to give the Cardinal a commanding 51-34 lead with just under six minutes left in the game. Stanford and Love get another favorable matchup against UCLA next week.
Sep 24 - 2:26 AM

Stanford redshirt junior QB Keller Chryst was forced out of Saturday's game against UCLA in the first half after taking a hard sack and is not expected to return to the game.

Chryst was scrambling to the right on the play in question when he was sandwiched between two Bruin defenders, hitting his head on the turf in the process. He was then taken to the locker room, after which he emerged without his helmet. Ryan Burns took over for him at signal-caller following the early exit. We'll update Chryst's status as information becomes available.
Sep 23 - 11:46 PM

Stanford redshirt sophomore Bryce Love ran for 184 yards on 13 carries and scored twice in a 20-17 loss to San Diego State on Saturday.

It's another big yardage day for Love (5'10/186), but it's also another day where Stanford couldn't get anything else going in a loss, which makes two straight. Both of his touchdowns went over 50 yards, a 51-yard score early in the second to give Stanford a 10-7 lead, and a 53-yarder early in the fourth quarter that put the Cardinal up 17-14. Stanford is going to have to get some more consistency from their passing game, but they clearly have a star at RB in Love.

SI's Albert Breer believes junior S Justin Reid could eventually land on Day 1 or 2.

The brother of 49ers safety Eric Reid, Justin Reid (6'1/195) was on the preseason Bednarik Award watch list and Jim Thorpe Award watch list. "The younger Reid might not be quite the prospect his brother was, but flashed the talent and toughness [on Saturday against USC] to go in the first two or three rounds," Breer wrote.

Stanford redshirt sophomore Bryce Love ran for 175 yards and a score on 17 carries in a 42-24 loss to USC on Saturday.

It's not quite time to say "Christian who?," but Love has certainly looked like a competent replacement for Christian McCaffery in the Cardinal backfield. Love's best run was a 75-yard sprint where he went untouched and tied the game at 7-7 in the first quarter. He wasn't able to bust off a huge run like that the rest of the day, but he did churn the yards and kept Stanford in the game until the middle of the fourth. The 5-foot-10, 186-pound junior will get a chance to run for more big yardage when Stanford travels to San Diego State next Saturday.

Stanford junior WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside returns to the field against USC after missing the season opener.

Arcega-Whiteside is the team's top returning receiver, posting 24 receptions, 379 yards and five touchdowns last season. As always, both Stanford and USC are re-tooling after losing a number of players to the NFL. For USC, a few of those departed from the defensive backfield. Arcega-Whiteside might be able to take advantage of that.

Stanford redshirt sophomore RB Bryce Love converted 13 carries into 180 yards and one touchdown in Saturday's 62-7 win against Rice in Sydney, Australia.

Head coach David Shaw put Love on ice in the third quarter once the game got out of hand. Prior to that, Love toyed with the Rice defense, starting with a 62-yard sprint on Stanford's first play from scrimmage. It was Love's first game as the undisputed starter after Christian McCaffrey was drafted in the first round by the Carolina Panthers. Love lost three first-half touchdowns to redshirt sophomore RB Cameron Scarlett, who functioned as the goal-line back. "Bryce is going to be our lead dog," Shaw said. "But it's nice to know we've got some guys who can back him up. I'm excited about where Bryce is heading into this season. We don't want to wear Bryce out in any one game, so those guys have got to come out and make plays like they did today." The 5-foot-10, 184-pound Love rushed for 783 yards (7.1 ypc) and three touchdowns while backing up McCaffrey last season. Love and his Cardinal teammates have a bye next before traveling to Pac-12 favorite USC.

Stanford redshirt sophomore RB Cameron Scarlett ran for three touchdowns in the first half of Saturday's 62-7 win over Rice in Sydney, Australia.

Scarlett vultured those scores from Bryce Love while functioning as the goal-line back. He finished with eight carries for 59 yards. Scarlett also got involved in the passing game, catching a 56-yard pass.
Aug 27 - 2:40 PM

Stanford freshman WR Connor Wedington had six catches for 82 yards in Saturday's 62-7 romp over Rice in Sydney, Australia.

Wedington's superb collegiate debut included a nifty one-handed snag. He functioned as Keller Chryst’s favorite target on Saturday. We'd caution against reading too much into that at this early juncture. Wedington, an all-state running back out of Washington who converted to receiver over the summer, was listed as Stanford's No. 4 wide receiver on the Week 1 depth chart HC David Shaw released last week. The four-star athlete was Rivals' No. 155 overall prospect in this past class.
Aug 27 - 2:33 PM

Stanford redshirt junior QB Keller Chryst went 14-of-25 for 253 yards and two touchdowns on Saturday in a 62-7 victory over Rice in Sydney, Australia.

Chryst was decent but not great before giving way to Ryan Burns and then K.J. Costello. His completion percentage could have been higher against a defense as forgiving as Rice's, and, while he didn't throw an interception, more than one ball was unnecessarily thrown into harm's way. But on the whole, it was a promising opener for Chryst, who tore the ACL in his right knee in December in the Sun Bowl. He looked completely healthy on Saturday.
Aug 27 - 2:22 PM

Stanford redshirt junior T A.T. Hall did not make the trip with the team for Saturday's opener against Rice in Australia.

Cardinal HC David Shaw confirmed that Hall would not be playing in the game, but offered no specific reason for him staying back in the States -- it is unclear at this juncture whether this is a disciplinary action or if there is an injury concern. Hall (6'5/295) was a 13-game starter last season. With him out for the opener, Devery Hamilton is expected to take over as starting right tackle, at least for the one game.
Aug 24 - 5:09 PM

Stanford named redshirt junior QB Keller Chryst (knee) starter for the 2017 season.

"We feel pretty good about [naming him starter]," HC David Shaw said "He’s shown us no signs of any issues at all physically, there are no limitations on him right now, so we feel good about him getting ready to go play in Sydney." After failing to beat out Ryan Burns for starting honors last August, Chryst came on to start the final six games of the 2016 season. He posted a 10/1 TD/INT ratio in that space before suffering a severe injury to his right knee against North Carolina in bowl action. The Cardinal are going to play things carefully with Chryst in camp just to minimize the possibility of re-injury.
Aug 10 - 6:18 PM

Stanford redshirt junior QB Keller Chryst (knee) will not participate in team drills early in camp.

Chryst is being held out of team drills as a precautionary measure. He is on the mend from a severe right knee injury suffered in bowl action against North Carolina this winter. While team drills are not in play right now, Chryst has been taking full-speed dropbacks and participating in scripted drills. The redshirt junior is battling with Ryan Burns, K.J. Costello and highly-touted true freshman Davis Mills for starting honors.
