Stanford will name former Cardinal quarterback Tavita Pritchard their new offensive coordinator.

The 30-year-old Pritchard takes over for Mike Bloomgren, who left to take the head coaching job at Rice. Pritchard has been with Stanford coaching staff since 2010, and played for the Cardinal from 2005-2009. He previously was the wide receiver and quarterback coach.

Stanford redshirt junior RB Bryce Love won the Doak Walker Award on Thursday.

Love beat out two Big Ten backs for the award for the top running back in the country: Wisconsin's Jonathan Taylor, and Penn State's Saquon Barkley. Despite being limited by an ankle injury late in the year, Love still put up spectacular numbers; rushing for 1,973 yards and 17 touchdowns on a sensational 8.3 yards-per-carry. He'll look to go over the magical two thousand yard mark in their bowl game against Oklahoma State in the Alamo Bowl.

Stanford sophomore TE Kaden Smith caught four passes for 80 yards and two touchdowns in Friday's 31-28 Pac-12 Championship Game loss to USC.

Smith (6'6/242) reeled in both of his touchdown hauls in the second half, showing impressively strong hands on each of them. The sophomore was a quiet performer for most of the season, but came on over the last three games of the campaign to catch a combined nine passes for 188 yards and four touchdowns. He was a four-star recruit in the 2016 class.

Stanford redshirt freshman QB K.J. Costello completed 10-of-22 passes for 192 yards and two touchdowns in Friday's 31-28 Pac-12 Championship Game loss to USC.

Costello was incredibly hit-and-miss throughout the game, but he did make a number of big throws to keep Stanford hanging around up until the very end. Both of his touchdown passes came in the second half and both went to Kaden Smith, the latter of which -- a 28-yard scoring toss with just over two minutes left in the game -- drew the Cardinal to within 31-28. They nearly got the ball back for one last shot at toppling the Trojans, but Sam Darnold iced the game with a short fourth-down conversion on a swing pass to end any hopes of comeback glory. Stanford's offense remains highly dependent on Bryce Love, but Costello's given the team at least a little passing juice since taking over as starter for an ineffective Keller Chryst midway through the campaign.

Stanford redshirt junior RB Bryce Love (ankle) rushed for 125 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries in Friday's 31-28 Pac-12 Championship Game loss to USC.

What a performance. Multiple times during the game, Love hobbled off the field due to his continued nagging high-ankle sprain, only to come right back out for another four or five yard run. This pattern played out repeatedly in what was one of the more physically impressive games by a limited player that we've seen this season. He's now up to 1,969 yards and 17 touchdowns through 12 games played (he missed a contest against Oregon State due to the ankle). Love is one of a handful of players in the country realistically in contention for the Heisman Trophy.

Stanford redshirt fresman Sione Lund will transfer from Stanford to Utah this January.

Because Lund is choosing to walk-on to the program and joining this winter, it's expected that he'll be able to play immediately. A six-foot, 254-pound bruiser, Lund was a four-star recruit that chose to go to Stanford over offers from hometown Utah and USC, but hasn't seen the field. With Zach Moss graduating, he could be inline for carries immediately if he shows the same talent he did as a prep.

Stanford redshirt freshman QB K.J. Costello completed 14-of-22 passes for 176 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in Saturday's win against Notre Dame.

Costello had a coming out party in this marquee matchup, as he entered the day with just five passing touchdowns across his first 140 attempts. He beat out Keller Chryst for the starting job in practice a couple of weeks ago and he hasn't looked back. He'll look to carry the momentum into the Pac-12 Conference Championship Game against USC next weekend.
Nov 25 - 11:54 PM

Stanford redshirt junior RB Bryce Love finished with 20 rushes for 125 yards in Saturday's 38-20 win against Notre Dame.

Love averaged a solid 6.3 yards per carry, which is pretty good considering he was dealing with an ankle injury leading up to the game. He aggravated his injury last week in 'The Big Game' against California. If he was not at 100 percent, you could have fooled the Irish. Love will look to continue the good work in the Pac-12 Conference Championship Game next week against USC.
Nov 25 - 11:48 PM

Stanford HC David Shaw announced that redshirt junior RB Bryce Love (ankle) will be active for Saturday's game against Notre Dame.

As expected. Though there was little question that Love would play, it's an open question about how far his ankle has progressed. Love injured it near the end of October, missed the Oregon State game, and has been playing at less than 100-percent since. Love re-injured the ankle last week against Cal. The Heisman candidate has run for 1,723 yards and 16 touchdowns this season on 8.84 yards YPC.
Nov 25 - 11:29 AM

Stanford redshirt junior RB Bryce Love (ankle) said that he plans on playing in Saturday's game against Notre Dame.

Love injured his ankle near the end of October. While he has managed to play in the last two contests, he suffered a recurrence of the issue against Cal over the weekend. The redshirt junior is a tough cookie and has shown the ability to play through the injury concern -- it forced him to miss Stanford's win over Oregon State earlier this fall, but that's it. This upcoming showdown with Notre Dame will be a stellar opportunity for Love to put his best Heisman foot forward if he can play. The Cardinal will be taking on the Irish in ABC's primetime slot come Saturday.
Nov 21 - 6:05 PM

Stanford redshirt junior RB Bryce Love re-injured his ankle in Saturday's win against Cal.

Love sat for the final 11:43 of game time. HC Davis Shaw said he nearly pulled Love out of the game earlier, before his 57-yard touchdown run. "He was in a lot of pain but he got that crease and then I saw that little 20 squirt out the backside," Shaw said. "Injured or not, there's nobody catching Bryce once he gets up to full speed." As is, Love ran for 101 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries in the 17-14 victory. Love's status for next week's game against Notre Dame is not yet known.

Stanford redshirt junior RB Bryce Love ran for 101 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries in a 17-14 victory over Cal on Saturday.

Love was held to just 17 yards on six carries in the first half. That didn't last long. On the first possession of the third quarter, Love took a pitch to the house for 57 yards and opened up Stanford's lead to 17-6. Even basically playing on one leg, he's still the best running back in the Pac-12 and one of the best in the country. Stanford closes their season next week in a great matchup with Notre Dame.

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.
Nov 16 - 11:48 PM

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.
Nov 11 - 10:27 AM

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.
