Stanford's Bryce Love won the Doak Walker Award on Thursday night as the nation's top running back.

Love led Power 5 running backs in rushing (164.4 yards per game) and had 100-yard games 11 times this season to tie the school record. His 12 runs of 50 or more yards are an FBS record.

He set a school record with 301 yards on 25 carries against Arizona State. With a bowl game remaining, he needs 47 yards to break the school record set by 2015 Heisman finalist Christian McCaffrey.

Love beat out Penn State's Saquon Barkley and Wisconsin's Jonathan Taylor for the award for the nation's top running back.
