In what has become a tradition of sorts for Stanford, junior running back Bryce Love finished second in voting for the Heisman Trophy.
Kind of insane stat: With Bryce Love tonight, Stanford has now finished second in the Heisman voting five times…. in the last 8 years (Gerhart, Luck twice, McCaffrey and Love). FIVE!!!

Love, who has run for 1,973 yards and 17 touchdowns this season, finished second to Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield. He earned 1,300 total vote points with 75 first-place votes, far behind Mayfield’s totals (2,398 points and 732 first-place votes). Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson, the reigning Heisman winner, finished third.
Stanford’s lone Heisman winner was quarterback Jim Plunkett in 1970. The last Pac-12 player to win the award was Oregon QB Marcus Mariota in 2014.
