Stanford senior WR J.J. Arcega-Whiteside caught four passes for 84 yards and two touchdowns in a 38-31 victory in overtime over Oregon on Saturday.

There just aren’t many wideouts who are better in the red zone than Whiteside. He was a key part of the comeback victory, and his score late in the fourth made it 31-28. This is going to be a monster season for Arcega-Whiteside if he can keep this up, and he has a marquee match-up next Saturday -- again -- against Notre Dame.
Sep 22 - 11:53 PM

Stanford QB K.J. Costello completed 19-of-26 passes for 327 yards with three touchdown passes in a 38-31 victory over Oregon on Saturday in overtime.

Anyone that doubts that Costello has what it takes to lead Stanford to a Pac-12 title was at least given pause after this effort. He missed on a few throws, but to say that he was good in the second half is an understatement. Two of his touchdown throws went to J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, but the third was the game-winner in overtime to Colby Parkinson. This is still Bryce Love’s offense, but Costello showed a lot tonight. He’ll need to have another quality game next Saturday when Stanford faces off against Notre Dame.
Sep 22 - 11:52 PM

Stanford senior RB Bryce Love ran 19 times for 89 yards and a touchdown in a 38-31 victory over Oregon on Saturday in overtime.

We have an early contender for game of the year. Oregon led at one point 24-7, but Stanford was able to battle back and get the come-from-behind victory in Autzen. Love wasn’t other-worldly, but he made several big plays to help the Cardinal get the comeback, including a score that made it 24-21. The Ducks -- like everyone else -- keyed in on the 2017 Heisman runner-up, but he’s so athletic and instinctive that he’s going to get his. Stanford and Love have another monster game next week when they take on Notre Dame next Saturday.
Sep 22 - 11:52 PM

Stanford senior RB Bryce Love (undisclosed) is expected to play in Saturday's game against Oregon.

Love (5'10/202) sat against UC Davis over the weekend, but by all accounts that was just a precautionary measure. Barring any sort of late setback, look for the senior standout to be back in action against the Ducks come Saturday. When last we saw Love, he was gouging USC for 136 yards rushing and a touchdown in an easy Week 2 victory. Cameron Scarlett would fill in for him if the Cardinal opt to play it safe at the last minute come the weekend.

Stanford redshirt senior CB Alijah Holder allowed just a 54.7 passer rating when targeted in Saturday's 30-10 win over UC Davis.

Holder was targeted on 16 pass attempts and allowed only seven receptions with a long of 14 yards. Despite his player being targeted frequently, Holder's coverage was good enough to hold them in check. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline gave Holder a 3rd-round grade prior to his 2017 injury and is now expected to be a late round pick. Pauline's biggest concern is on the medical front, which hasn't proven to be a problem this season.
Sep 16 - 9:57 AM

Stanford redshirt sophomore QB K.J. Costello completed 17-of-30 passes for 214 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in Saturday's 30-10 win over UC Davis.

Costello (6'4/216) wasn't at his best on Saturday, but it was definitely still good enough to take care of UC Davis at home. With Bryce Love missing the game, the Stanford offense needed Costello to pass a tad more than he did against USC last week. Costello's two touchdowns both went to big-bodied wide receiver JJ Arcega-Whiteside in the red zone, who is clearly Costello's best target. Costello, Arcega-Whiteside, and Love -- who HC David Shaw expects to play -- will need to bring their best to keep up with Oregon's offense next week.
Sep 15 - 6:23 PM

Stanford senior WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside caught three passes for 36 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 30-10 win over UC Davis.

All Arcega-Whiteside (6'3/225) does is score touchdowns; He's already up to five scores through three games. In today's game, Arcega-Whiteside scored two red zone touchdowns where he showed off his strength and boxing out skills (the videos are in the link below). With a huge frame and an ability to also beat the opponent deep, the Stanford wide out is establishing himself as one of the nation's better pass catchers. Arcega-Whiteside will look to find the end zone again next week against an Oregon offense that scores at will.
Sep 15 - 5:40 PM

Stanford junior RB Trevor Speights rushed for 87 yards on 11 carries in Saturday's 30-10 win over UC Davis.

With star RB Bryce Love (undisclosed) ruled out, redshirt junior Cameron Scarlett was expected to take on a bulk of the carries, but Speights (5'11/209) out-rushed Scarlett, 87 to 30, and also added a reception for 14 yards. Speights' rushing yards, carries, and longest run (38 yards) were all career highs. With Scarlett averaging a brutal 2.76 yards per carry this season, Speights has a chance to establish himself as Love's primary backup. Coach David Shaw expects Love to return next week against Oregon however.
Sep 15 - 5:29 PM

Stanford HC David Shaw said that he expects that senior RB Bryce Love (undisclosed) will be available for the team's Week 4 showdown with Oregon.

Love (5'10/202) was lifted late in Saturday's win over USC due to an undisclosed injury concern. The Cardinal will play it safe with the star senior this coming weekend, as they'll be playing lesser competition in UC Davis and don't figure to require his dynamic services. Cameron Scarlett will start in his place for that one. We'll keep tabs on Love's status as information becomes available. Nagging injury plagued him down the stretch a year ago.
Sep 12 - 4:19 PM

With Stanford senior RB Bryce Love (undisclosed) ruled out for Saturday's game against UC Davis, look for redshirt junior Cameron Scarlett to draw the start.

We've seen a fair bit of Scarlett over the past year or so, as he's been next-man-up while Love's dealt with various minor injury issues (last season, a pesky ankle issue). The 6-foot-1, 213-pounder rushed for 389 yards (4.3 YPC) and eight touchdowns while taking 91 carries in 2017. He's averaging just 2.3 YPC on 24 totes of the rock through two games this time around. Thankfully for the Cardinal faithful, this is not a matchup which would require a heavy dose of Love to begin with.

Stanford senior RB Bryce Love (undisclosed) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against UC Davis.

Love (5'10/202) was injured and subsequently taken to the locker room in the fourth quarter of Saturday's win over USC. While Cardinal HC David Shaw said after the contest that he was merely lifted as a precaution, looks like the team will be playing it safe against Saturday's soft matchup versus UC Davis. With the star senior ruled out for this coming weekend, Cameron Scarlett will take lead work. We'll pass along updates on Love's status as information warrants.

Stanford senior RB Bryce Love came off the field and went into the locker room in the fourth quarter of Saturday's win against USC due to an undisclosed injury.

Head coach David Shaw said Love was sent off as a precaution after a hard hit, as the Cardinal had the game well in hand at that point. Love was able to gobble up 136 yards with a touchdown on his 22 carries in the 14-point victory against the Trojans. It sounds like he'll be more than ready for next week's game against FCS foe UC-Davis, and he could roll up some huge numbers against the Aggies, too.
Sep 9 - 1:38 AM

Stanford redshirt sophomore QB K.J. Costello completed 19-of-27 passes for 183 yards and a touchdown in a 17-3 victory over USC on Saturday.

Costello was not asked to do a ton on this one -- he rarely is -- but he was efficient and accurate with this throws, and he found Colby Parkinson for his lone touchdown. It wasn't the big effort he put up against San Diego State, but he wasn't facing nine-man fronts like he was against the Aztecs. Costello and the Cardinal get UC-Davis next Saturday.
Sep 9 - 12:08 AM

Stanford senior RB Bryce Love ran for 136 yards and a score on 22 carries in a 17-3 victory over USC on Saturday.

Now that's more like it. Love was completely bottled up by San Diego State in their opener, but Love found much more room in the victory over the Trojans. He showed off his impressive speed on a 59-yard scamper, and he found the end zone for the first time in 2018 with a six-yard score on the opening drive. There were still a few too many negative runs -- not that most were Love's fault -- but overall, a very solid day for the Heisman runner-up. He should have another quality game next Saturday against UC-Davis.
Sep 9 - 12:01 AM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline writes that his biggest concern with Stanford redshirt senior CB Alijah Holder is whether he will pass his medical checks in the spring.

Pauline viewed Holder as a third-round prospect at the start of the 2017 season, but he missed the final month of that campaign due to a leg injury. He was limited to just four games played in 2016 due to a season-ending shoulder injury, too. Looking past the medical concerns, Pauline writes that when he's healthy, the 6-foot-2, 186-pound Holder "possesses outstanding size, next-level ball skills and good upside." We wouldn't rule out a late Day 2 selection for Holder next spring should he pass the medical benchmarks.
