Arcega-Whiteside, Stanford race past SDSU in season opener

No. 13 Stanford (1-0) rode the shoulders of an explosive offensive playmaker, who posted 200-plus yards and entered his name into the early-season Heisman discussion, en route to win over SDSU (0-1) on Friday night.

It was a familiar script for the Cardinal, except for the fact that it wasn’t Bryce Love’s name at the top of the stat sheet. Instead, it was wide receiver JJ Arcega-Whiteside who had a career night as No. 13 Stanford shook off early woes on both sides of the ball, easing to a 31-10 victory.
