After Christian McCaffrey singlehandedly destroyed Iowa in last year’s Rose Bowl, the nation was introduced to “Heisman Bro“. He was face-punchably obnoxious, but he wasn’t entirely wrong.
McCaffrey rushed for over 2,000 yards, and added 600 yards receiving. He also handled punt and kickoff returns for the Cardinal in 2015. His stats screamed “Heisman!!!!!”, the voters screamed “Runner Up”.
Last night against Kansas State, McCaffrey kicked off his 2016 sprint for the Heisman right where he left off. He flashed regularly during the Cardinal’s 26-13 win over the Wildcats with 126 yards on 26 carries and 201 all-purpose yards
The highlight of the night was a McCaffrey punt return that was called back for an illegal block in the back. Can a play that didn’t count be the play of the year?

McCaffrey added two impressive touchdown runs that actually did count, including a 31-yard fourth quarter dash to put the game out of reach for Stanford.

This is how you finish in the 4th quarter. Christian McCaffrey does it again. https://t.co/iSyuIpDefc

I think we all know what “Stanford Bro” thinks.
