Keller Chryst started off this game FAST. On only the second offensive play of the game, Chryst took matters into his own hands and took the ball for Stanford’s second-longest rushing TD of the season (62 yards):

It’s likely that this will set the tone for the remainder of the game as Rice’s defense ranks second-worst (127th) in FBS in yards per play allowed, while Stanford has one of the most powerful rushing attacks in the country.
