Stanford redshirt sophomore QB K.J. Costello completed 23-of-33 passes for 342 yards with four touchdowns and one interception in Saturday's 48-17 win over Oregon State.

Costello (6'4/216) now has four 300-yard games in his last five, but the big takeaway was the emergence of tight end Colby Parkinson, who had all four of Costello's touchdowns. The redshirt sophomore threw two red zone touchdowns to Parkinson, but they also connected for a huge 75-yard score along the sideline to blow the game open. With Bryce Love looking healthy as well, Stanford has a chance to finish strong, despite a disappointing season. The rivalry came against Cal awaits.
Nov 11 - 12:50 AM

Stanford sophomore TE Colby Parkinson caught six passes for 166 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 48-17 win over Oregon State.

Parkinson (6'7/240) essentially took over for J.J. Arcega-Whiteside tonight. Parkinson had four touchdowns including two red zone scores, but the biggest was to the sideline where he made a leaping grab before running it in for a 75-yard touchdown. The sophomore tight end hadn't scored since September 22nd, which makes tonight's game even more notable. With Arcega-Whiteside and Bryce Love headed to the NFL Draft, Parkinson could be walking into a bigger role in 2019.
Nov 11 - 12:43 AM

Stanford senior RB Bryce Love ran for 90 yards and one touchdown on 11 carries in Stanford's 48-17 win over Oregon State.

Love (5'10/202) entered the game averaging just 4.4 yards per carry as he as battled injury after injury, so it was refreshing to see Love have some success tonight. The senior back scored his fifth touchdown of the season on a 28-yard first quarter run where he broke the safeties ankle on a quick cut in the open field. Love is an interesting NFL Draft prospect, but everything will hinge on the status of his ankle. If he can finish the year with games like tonight, those questions should be lessened a little. Stanford will play Cal next week before ending the regular season against UCLA.
Nov 11 - 12:35 AM

Stanford senior WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside (leg) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Oregon State.

Arcega-Whiteside (6'3/225) was carted off the field after sustaining a leg injury in the first half of this past Saturday's loss to Washington. Stanford HC David Shaw said that "barring a miracle" he will be sitting out against the Beavers this weekend. The senior wideout owns a 48-754-11 receiving line in nine games this season. There is no immediate timetable for Arcega-White's return at this juncture. Stanford will have contests against Cal and UCLA to close out the regular season after they have tangoed with OSU.
Nov 8 - 2:00 PM

Stanford junior TE Kaden Smith snagged eight passes for 107 yards with a touchdown in a 27-23 loss to Washington on Saturday.

Smith and quarterback K.J. Costello clearly had a connection on Saturday, as several of the throws were "I trust you" efforts where Smith seemed to turn at just the right moment. The touchdown, however, was a strike from Costello to get Stanford on the board in the third quarter. Smith has established himself as one of the best tight ends in football, and has his third straight game of over 100 yards receiving. There's no reason to think that the fourth in a row won't come next Saturday against Oregon State.
Nov 4 - 12:45 AM

Stanford senior RB Bryce Love ran 18 times for 71 yards with a touchdown in a 27-23 loss to Washington on Saturday.

The touchdown was the first time that Love (5'10/202) has found the end zone since September 29 against Notre Dame. He also had a nifty 28-yard run that set up a touchdown pass, but outside of that, the tailback was bottled up. Again. Love's year can't be considered anything but a disappointment, even if injuries are a large reason why. Stanford will take on Oregon State next Saturday.
Nov 4 - 12:40 AM

Stanford redshirt sophomore QB K.J. Costello completed 29-of-43 passes for 347 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions in a 27-23 loss to Washington on Saturday.

You typically don't see teams gash the Huskies through the air, and while some of this was in desperation mode -- and a large chunk came on a long (but meaningless) completion at the end of the first half -- Costello made some nice throws, and got Stanford back in the game after a 21-0 deficit. Unfortunately for the Cardinal, it wasn't enough, and they've dropped 4-of-5 games. They'll try to right the ship against Oregon State next Saturday.
Nov 4 - 12:34 AM

Stanford senior WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside (leg) has been ruled out for the remainder of Saturday's game against Washington with an apparent right leg injury.

Arcega-Whiteside was taken back to the locker room on a cart after suffering the injury during the second quarter, and prior to that he couldn't put much weight on his leg while leaving the field. Stanford's next game is scheduled for November 10 against Oregon State, and it remains to be seen if they'll have their top pass-catcher available.
Nov 3 - 11:06 PM

Stanford senior WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside (leg) was taken to the locker room on a cart during the second quarter of Saturday's game at Washington.

Arcega-Whiteside (6'3/225) having to be taken back to the locker room on a cart is a concerning turn of events for Stanford's best option in the passing game. The senior was unable to put much pressure on his right leg when leaving the field after the injury occurred, and after some time in the injury tent he was then carted to the locker room. There's been no ruling on Arcega-Whiteside's status for the second half, but the odds for a return don't look too good.
Nov 3 - 10:45 PM

Stanford senior WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside (leg) left the game during the second quarter of Saturday's game at Washington with an apparent leg injury.

Already trailing by a 21-0 score, things got even worse for the Cardinal when Arcega-Whiteside had to depart after making his first catch of the game. The senior wideout has been QB K.J. Costello's most dependable target in the passing game this season, as he entered Saturday's game with 47 catches, 743 receiving yards and 11 touchdown receptions. Should Arcega-Whiteside not be able to return, Stanford will be hard-pressed to account for the loss of its top receiver.
Nov 3 - 10:29 PM

Stanford senior WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside caught 10 passes for 111 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 41-38 loss to Washington State.

Arcega-Whiteside (6'3/225) came up clutch with a 25-yard scoring grab to tie the game at 38-38 with under two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, but WSU would come back with a field goal to hand the Cardinal a tough loss. This was the senior wideout's fourth game in eight contests in which he's made at least one touchdown catch, and his third 100-yard game to boot. He's without a doubt one of our favorite wideouts to watch just due to his beautiful body control and route-running. Arcega-Whiteside will try to add to his already impressive touchdown tally -- he's caught 11 this season -- against Washington next weekend.
Oct 27 - 11:32 PM

Stanford redshirt sophomore QB K.J. Costello completed 34-of-43 passes for 323 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 41-38 loss to Washington State.

Strong, strong effort by Costello and the rest of the Cardinal in this one. They just so happened to end up with the hot potato at the end of the fourth quarter. The redshirt sophomore threw three of his four touchdown passes in the first half, quieted in the third quarter and then came on for a huge game-tying touchdown toss to J.J. Arcega-Whiteside from 25 yards out with under two minutes remaining in the game. Alas for the home faithful, Wazzu would proceed to go ahead on a field goal, one which Stanford was unable to answer. This was Costello's first game with multiple touchdown passes since the first game of the campaign. He'll have to fight it through against UW's tough secondary next weekend.
Oct 27 - 11:26 PM

Stanford redshirt junior RB Cameron Scarlett rushed for 54 yards and a touchdown on nine carries in Thursday's 20-13 win over Arizona State.

Scarlett (6'1/213) saw a fair bit of second-half work after Bryce Love left with an ankle injury. His one-yard score near the end of the third quarter gave Stanford a 20-6 advantage, and while ASU would have several chances to make up that deficit in full, the Cardinal managed to escape the desert with a hard-fought win. Scarlett would be in line for a full workload if Love has to miss time. Stanford will tango with Washington State a week from Saturday.
Oct 19 - 12:56 AM

Stanford senior WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside caught seven passes for 91 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 20-13 win over Arizona State.

In a game lacking for much offensive spark, Arcega-Whiteside had a handful of noteworthy grabs, with his 28-yard touchdown catch down the middle in the third quarter snapping a 6-6 tie and giving the game its first score that was not a field goal. The 6-foot-3, 225-pound senior is now up to nine touchdown catches on the year. He's failed to strike end-zone gold in just two games this season. Arcega-Whiteside will try to reach double-digits in touchdowns against Washington State in Week 9.
Oct 19 - 12:50 AM

Stanford senior RB Bryce Love (ankle) was taken to the medical tent in the second half of Thursday's game against Arizona State.

Love (5'10/202) has once again been dealing with ankle injury for much of the campaign, with the issue most recently flaring up after he had his leg rolled up in a loss to Notre Dame several weeks back. He subsequently sat out against Utah, then rested up on bye before starting Thursday's contest. Now injured again. Look for Cameron Scarlett and Trevor Speights to see the bulk of the work for the remainder of the game unless Love manages to return late.
