With the loss of Andrew Luck to the NFL, Stanford offense has taken a big hit and is not going to be able to get nearly the same level of production from Brett Nottingham and Josh Nunes, the two quarterbacks in the front running for the starting job.
There is, however, a reason for Cardinal fans to breathe a sigh of relief. That reason is running back Stepfan Taylor, who rushed for 1,330 yards and 10 touchdowns last season.
This year, the senior back is going to have an even better year than last. Despite a weaker offensive line and more focus upon the running game with Luck gone, Taylor will continue to excel and surpass his yardage and touchdown totals from last season.
This article will predict how well Stepfan Taylor will do in each game on the Cardinal’s schedule.
