Stanford sophomore running back Christian McCaffrey was named the Pac-12's offense player of the week for his masterful performance against UCLA last Thursday.

McCaffrey set a school-record with 243 rushing yards on 25 carries in three quarters of play in Stanford’s 56-35 win over UCLA. 

McCaffrey tied the Cardinal record with four rushing touchdowns and his 369 all-purpose yards are the most by any FBS player this season and was 10 yards short of the school record. He now leads the nation with 1,518 all-purpose yards.
