Christian McCaffrey breaks Barry Sanders’s single-season all-purpose yards record

Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey has been one of the most electric players in the entire country this season. He has been one of the biggest reasons why the Cardinal have competed for the College Football Playoff all season.

The Cardinal are playing in the conference championship game against USC when McCaffrey set a big record. He broke Barry Sanders’s single-season record for most all-purpose yards.
