Getting a first after a 2nd-and-21 is huge for this Stanford offense and we're seeing a dynamicity that we've been sorely missing.: 4 mins ago, Stanford Daily Sport

And that's what Ty brings to the table even when he doesn't have the ball.: 6 mins ago, Stanford Daily Sport
Fake end-around to Ty, pitch to McCaffrey. That's what you can do with two dynamic playmakers on the field at the same time.: 7 mins ago, Stanford Daily Sport
Three of five Stanford completions have gone to Montgomery - Shaw staying true to his word of getting Ty a lot more involved: 7 mins ago, Stanford Daily Sport
Stanford takes over on its own 47 and has fantastic field position to put the Beavers in a big hole early.: 9 mins ago, Stanford Daily Sport
Bolden drops the third-and-forever pass from Mannion and the Stanford defense is still doing Stanford defense things: 11 mins ago, Stanford Daily Sport
Two straight false starts. Can't tell if OSU offensive line or Stanford offensive line: 13 mins ago, Stanford Daily Sport
Here comes Sean Mannion, who looked decidedly uncomfortable throwing on the run on that first play.: 14 mins ago, Stanford Daily Sport

Stanford Football: Stepfan Taylor named Pac-12 Player of the Week

Despite playing a little over half the game, Stanford running back Stepfan Taylor was named Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week after racking up 142 yards on 20 carries in the No. 8 Cardinal’s 35-17 victory over UCLA on Saturday.

Taylor’s 21st career 100-yard game was marked by several big runs, including a 49-yard burst to the end zone in the second quarter and a a 40-yard run in the third quarter. The senior from Mansfield, Texas, scored two touchdowns before coach David Shaw pulled him from the game to rest his legs.

He hasn’t looked tired of late, despite going over the 4,000 yard mark for his career on the Card’s opening drive, and is third in the Pac-12 and 16th in the nation in rushing, averaging 113.67 yards per game this season. Stanford has two games remaining this season, and Taylor is now just 36 yards from breaking Darrin Nelson’s Stanford career-record 4,169 yards.

The Cardinal will host UCLA on Friday in the Pac-12 Championship game with a berth in the Rose Bowl on the line.
