The Pac-12 North will return its best player next season.
Heisman Trophy runner-up Bryce Love will return to Stanford for his senior season, per reports. The Cardinal running back will pass up the NFL Draft to come back to Palo Alto, where he helped lead the program to a spot in the Pac-12 Championship Game.
Love battled multiple injuries late in the season but managed to finish with over 2,000 rushing yards and over 8 yards per carry.
Love won the 2017 Doak Walker Award, given to the nation’s best running back.
