Stanford star running back Bryce Love will return for Saturday’s game at Oregon, Cardinal coach David Shaw said Tuesday on the Pac-12 coaches teleconference.
Love missed the game last Saturday game against UC Davis with an undisclosed injury. He apparently was injured in the fourth quarter of the Sept. 8 game against Southern California.
“Bryce is great,” Shaw said as the No. 7 Cardinal and No. 20 Ducks are 3-0 heading into the showdown in Eugene, Ore. “He’s ready to go and fired up for this weekend.”
Love, a senior, entered the season as a leading Heisman Trophy candidate but has just 165 rushing yards. He was held to 29 yards by San Diego State in the season opener and followed up with 136 against USC.

—After getting an unexpected weekend off, No. 16 UCF (2-0) will return to the field when it hosts Florida Atlantic (2-1) on Friday night.
The kickoff for the ESPN game at Spectrum Stadium in Orlando is at 7 p.m. ET.
The Knights have not played since shutting out South Carolina State 38-0 at home in the season’s second weekend to stretch their winning streak to 15 games. Their scheduled game at North Carolina last week was canceled because of the impending threat of Hurricane Florence.
