Stanford RB Bryce Love out with ankle injury vs. Oregon State

Stanford running back Bryce Love, who has been nursing an ankle injury, did not play in the Cardinal's 15-14 comeback win over Oregon State on Thursday.

A serious Heisman Trophy candidate, Love is the nation's leading rusher with 1,387 yards in seven games and is averaging 10.27 yards per carry. He suffered the injury on Oct. 14, in the Cardinal's 49-7 win against Oregon.

The Cardinal (6-2, 5-1 Pac-12) announced about 90 minutes before the start of the game in Corvallis that Love would sit out.

Stanford coach David Shaw said earlier this week Love would be a game-time decision and told ESPN's Laura Rutledge on Thursday they made the determination he couldn't be effective. The game was televised on ESPN.
