McCaffrey is the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week

 

Stanford sophomore running back Christian McCaffrey was named the Pac-12 Conference Offensive Player of the Week, as announced Monday.

McCaffrey set a school single-game record with 243 yards rushing on 25 carries (9.7 yards/carry) in three quarters of action in Stanford's 56-35 win over UCLA. He did not have a single rush for negative yardage.

McCaffrey tied the Cardinal single-game record with four rushing touchdowns

His 369 all-purpose yards against the Bruins are the most by any FBS player this season and 10 short of the school record.

In other Stanford football news, next year's schedule with Kansas State and Rice has been modified.

The Cardinal will face Rice at Stanford Stadium on Nov. 26, 2016, in a game that was originally scheduled to open the 2016 season on Sept. 3.

The 2016 season opener will be Friday, Sept. 2, at Stanford Stadium against Kansas State, the first meeting between the two programs. In addition, the Cardinal will travel to Kansas State on Sept. 4, 2021.
