Christian who? Love stars in No. 14 Stanford's win over Rice

Bryce Love has rushed for 111 yards and 2 TDs in the 1Q for No. 14 Stanford. I bet he would agree that the breakout performance has been by the Cardinal o-line. The holes are enormous.

Ivan Maisel ESPN Senior Writer 

The notoriously slow starting Stanford offense has scored two TDs in two possessions. I'm guessing that last happened when Jim Plunkett was quarterback. Seriously, Keller Chryst is moving and throwing as if he never tore his ACL in the Sun Bowl.
