Stan­ford’s McCaffrey to skip Sun Bowl to pre­pare for draft

The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

Chris­tian McCaffrey is done play­ing col­lege foot­ball even though Stan­ford has one more game.

The star run­ning back wants to pre­pare for the draft and said on Twit­ter on Mon­day he will not play in the Sun Bowl. The No. 16 Car­di­nal (9-3) face North Carolina (8-4) on Dec. 30 in El Paso, Texas. He thanked his team­mates for their sup­port.

McCaffrey is the sec­ond prom­i­nent player to make such a de­ci­sion for the same rea­son. LSU run­ning back Leonard Four­nette has said he will not play in the Cit­rus Bowl.
