It was all happiness and love as the Stanford Cardinal Football club thrashed UCLA before 48,000 fans on Saturday at Stanford Stadium. However, the victory did not come easy – starter Keller Chryst was pushed out of the game with an injury. Costello stole the game as he took the Cardinals to a 58-34 victory.

Bryce Love’s input in the match was noticeable; he would run back and forth to assist Costello with Stanford Cardinal Football Club’s unbeaten spree over the Bruins, and ensure that they stayed on track. Saturday’s victory over the Bruins marked Cardinal’s 10th straight win.

Cumulatively, Love ran 263 yards, which is just 21 yards to Christian McCaffery’s rushing record. His efforts were not wasted.l.

Stanford Cardinal Football club’s coach, David Shaw, was really impressed at Love’s performance. The coach described Love as a runner, who is physical and explosive, and overtly, “the story of the game.”

However, Love was not the only story of the game.

Three of Cardinal’s touchdowns came from running back Cameroon Scarlett, who ran 62 yards to score the last one in a period of, literally, no time. During the first half, Jet Toner scored three field goals, with the defense reasonably containing an offense that can be considered the most dangerous – forced four turnovers as well as blocked at attempt for a field goal.

Where did the Bruins go wrong?

The uphill slog of the Bruins that led to nowhere begun during the first half. It had appeared that a catch by Howard was the defining moment, but it was short-lived when he fumbled in the second quarter when Alijah Holder, Stanford’s cornerback took the ball. Before halftime, Jet Toner, Stanford's kicker put the Cardinal in the lead, 23-20.

Bruin’s defense is to blame for the loss; they messed up a couple of times. For example, they had managed to contain Love but let him loose later in the match.

Is there hope for UCLA?

AJC Sports reported that the UCLA’s coach, Jim Mora still believes that they have a share in this season. This comes after losing twice consecutively, and with a game in a few days’ time with Colarado.

He vowed to the fans of UCLA that they can expect a positive performance in the coming games. “I promise UCLA fans we will rise up,” Mora said. “We will absolutely rise up... we’re all doing our best and we just have to find a way to be better,” AJC reported.

The Stanford Cardinal Football teams have registered a large number of wins over time, an aspect that is also the reason why institutions help to sponsor the team for competitions.
