Stanford's Love wins Doak Walker Award as nation's top running back

Stanford‘s Bryce Love capped a remarkable season by bringing home some serious hardware on Thursday, capturing the Doak Walker Award as the nation’s top running back.

Love picked up right where Christian McCaffrey left off at Stanford last year, piling up 1,973 yards and 17 touchdowns despite battling an ankle injury throughout the season. The junior was second in the country in rushing yards despite carrying the ball 38 times less than leader Rashaad Penny of San Diego State.

Love captured the award over Penn State‘s Saquon Barkley and Wisconsin‘s Jonathan Taylor.
