Ranking college football's best triplets

Boasting a dominant player at quarterback, running back and wide receiver usually translates into big-time offense at all levels of football.

So, which teams in college football will feature the best sets of triplets in 2018? Here's how we rank the top 15 going into spring ball:

1. Stanford: QB K.J. Costello, RB Bryce Love, WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside

Love is one of the top returning overall players in college football. He was the nation's second-leading rusher last season with 2,118 yards to go along with 19 TDs, which made him a finalist for the Heisman. Alongside Love in the Stanford backfield, Costello came on strongly late last season, tossing nine total TD passes against opponents who at the time were ranked eighth (Notre Dame), 10th (USC) and 15th (TCU) to finish out the year. Costello is sitting out spring ball with an injury, but he should return for the start of the season. At 6-foot-3, Arcega-Whiteside is a big target for Costello and tied for the second-most TDs in the Pac-12 in 2017 with nine, including three in the Alamo Bowl alone.
