Stanford senior DL Harrison Phillips leads all interior lineman in stops this season according to Pro Football Focus.

As a refresher, a stop is a play that constitutes a win for the defense. Phillips (6'4/295) has made 32 in the 2017 season. He dominated against Oregon State two weeks ago, and he was a problem against the much tougher Washington offensive line in their upset win. It wouldn't be a big upset if Phillips ends up going on day one if he shows out against Cal and especially Notre Dame if he ended up being one of the first handful of interior defenders off the board come spring.

Stanford junior WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside caught five passes for 130 yards in the school's 30-22 win over Washington on Friday.

Arcega-Whiteside converted a number of big catches including a 39-yard grab. Outside of the Oregon game last month, this was JJAW's best performance of his career.

Stanford redshirt junior RB Bryce Love carried the ball 30 times for 166 yards and three touchdowns in the school's 30-22 win over Washington on Saturday.

Love was outstanding in this game, avoiding tackles at the line of scrimmage and displaying shiftiness at the second level. Love missed the game against Oregon State and then managed just 69 total yards against Washington State in a loss. Love got back to his highly productive ways in this one, and Stanford's offensive line continued their dominant ways.

Updating a previous item, Stanford redshirt junior RB Bryce Love (ankle) returned to Friday's game against Washington after briefly leaving the contest in the second quarter.

Love limped off the field early in the second quarter but returned several minutes later. However, even after he came back into the game, he was still clearly limited by his ankle. He's been battling the injury concern for the past three weeks. Expect the Cardinal to play this cautiously for the remainder of Friday's game. Cameron Scarlett figures to see his fair share of carries with Love limited.

Stanford redshirt junior RB Bryce Love limped off the field in the second quarter of Friday's game against Washington.

Uh oh. Love has been dealing with a pesky ankle injury for several weeks and this appears to be an aggravation of that previous concern. He was noticeably frustrated after his sidelining on Friday. The redshirt junior hasn't officially been ruled out for the rest of the game, but is currently sitting on the bench without a helmet. Cameron Scarlett will see the majority of carries so long as Love is out. What once looked like a potential Heisman campaign has mostly sputtered due to the injury slowdown.
Nov 10 - 11:42 PM

Stanford redshirt freshman QB K.J. Costello will start once again in Friday's game against Washington.

This was more or less a formality, as Cardinal HC David Shaw turned the keys over to Costello against Washington State last Saturday after the redshirt freshman beat out Keller Chryst in open competition during the practice week. He was less-than-impressive in this past weekend's loss to the Cougars, completing 9-of-20 passes for 105 yards and an interception. We see him being in for a rough evening against Washington's staunch defense.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline passes along that Stanford junior TE Dalton Schultz is receiving draft grades ranging from the second round to the sixth round.

We've always been high on Schultz's athletic gifts, but the 6-foot-6, 239-pound junior has not been a consistent factor on offense during his career with the Cardinal. This season, Schultz has caught 17 passes for 181 yards and a pair of scores. Granted, Stanford's passing offense is an anemic entity, but still. That being said, in a thin class for tight ends relative to 2017's loaded class, it would not be a surprise if Schultz began to rise in estimation during the evaluating process assuming he declares this winter.
Nov 8 - 10:18 PM

Stanford redshirt junior RB Bryce Love (ankle) rushed for 69 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries in Saturday's 24-21 loss to Washington State.

Love sat out against Oregon State a week ago Thursday while nursing an ankle injury, but managed to suit up and play on Saturday. He busted out for a 52-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter which accounted for almost the entirety of his rushing output against the Cougars. He'll try to get his Heisman campaign back on track in earnest when Stanford does battle with Washington next Friday.
Nov 4 - 7:06 PM

Stanford redshirt junior RB Bryce Love (ankle) will play in Saturday's game against Washington State.

Love (5'10/196) was unable to take the field in last Thursday's win over Oregon State due to an ankle injury sustained the previous weekend. The Heisman contender will be back at it this weekend, though. It's a huge boost for the Cardinal, as Love is essentially the entire offense. He's rushed for 1,387 yards and 11 touchdowns in seven games this season. Should Stanford limit him by degrees against the Cougars on Saturday, Cameron Scarlett and Trevor Speights would see expanded carries.
Nov 3 - 5:13 PM

Stanford redshirt junior RB Bryce Love made his debut on Todd McShay's board at No. 27 overall.

"He'll be compared to Christian McCaffery, but at 5-10, 195, he doesn't have the same frame," McShay wrote. Love leads the FBS with 1,387 yards rushing and 198.1 rushing yards per game. He's averaging a stupefying 10.3 YPC and has accounted for 11 of the Cardinal’s 33 offensive touchdowns. All that despite missing last week's game against Oregon State with an ankle injury. Love will be a game-time decision for Saturday's contest at Washington State.

Stanford redshirt freshman QB K.J. Costello will start at quarterback against Washington State on Saturday.

Stanford coach David Shaw announced that Costello and fellow quarterback Keller Chryst would battle for the starting spot. Costello has won that battle. Chryst struggled mightily outside of the final drive against Oregon State last week, and Costello has shown flashes of upside in his time with the Cardinal. We'll have to see how short of leash the freshman has, but for now, this is his show.
Nov 2 - 9:58 PM

Stanford head coach David Shaw announced that the quarterback position is back up for grabs.

"Going forward, we’ll see where we are with the quarterback situation is by the end of the week," Shaw said. "We’re in competition mode, I think as it should be and how we have been. Keller (Chryst) has practiced extremely well. KJ (Costello) has practiced well. We probably won’t wait until game day." While Shaw said the week of the Utah game that both Chryst and Costello would play, this time he said: "How much each guy plays, or one guy, we’ll make that decision later this week." Chryst played the entirety of last week's 15-14 win over Oregon State, but he was utterly ineffective. Stay tuned for an announcement. If Shaw is to be believed, it'll be coming over the next 48-plus hours.

Stanford senior CB Alijah Holder will miss the remainder of the season with an undisclosed leg injury.

This is back to back short season for Holder who exited last October with a shoulder injury. In 2017 the cornerback totaled two tackles for loss, three forced fumbles and an interception.
Nov 1 - 10:42 AM

Stanford HC David Shaw says redshirt junior RB Bryce Love (ankle) is "feeling better this week than last week," but will "probably be a game-time decision" for Saturday's contest at Washington State.

Love sat out late Thursday's sluggish win over Oregon State with an ankle injury. "He’s not necessarily ready to practice today, but he’s with the training staff trying to get ready, and hopefully he can go on Saturday," Shaw said on Tuesday. Love leads the FBS with 198.1 rush yards per game. He’s accounted for 11 of the Cardinal’s 33 offensive touchdowns. Without Love against the Beavers, Stanford’s Cameron Scarlett and Trevor Speights combined for 82 yards on 22 carries. It was a season-low rushing total for the Cardinal, a team that relies heavily on its star runner.
Oct 31 - 4:26 PM

NFL Draft Scout's Dane Brugler believes that Stanford senior DL Harrison Phillips improved his draft stock with his dominant play against Oregon State on Friday.

Phillips (6'4/295) was the leading tackler for the Cardinal on Friday, which is a rarity for a defensive tackle as Brugler notes. Brugler also notes that he showed a "full skill-set in the comeback victory over the Beavers, flashing power, athleticism and instincts." Phillips has marquee matchups left with Washington State, Washington and Notre Dame, so more performances like the one he had against the lowly Beavers will see his stock rise even higher.
