Christian McCaffrey Just Broke a 60-Year Record

There's a new Big Game rushing yard leader.

On the 90 yard rushing touchdown, Christian McCaffrey just put up his 216th rushing yard, breaking a 60-year Big Game record of 209 rushing yards (Lou Valli).

This very likely will not be the only record that Christian McCaffrey breaks in Big Game 2016; with 216 rushing yards in just over two quarters, it seems likely that he'll break his own record for most rushing yards in a single game by a Stanford player (243).

The 90-yard rushing touchdown was also the longest of the season and the third-longest in Stanford history.
