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