BEST INDIVIDUAL GAME
Christian McCaffrey, Stanford in Pac-12 championship game
With 461 total yards in Stanford’s 41-22 victory over Southern California in the Pac-12 title game, McCaffrey surpassed the season total-yard mark of Oklahoma State’s Barry Sanders. McCaffrey was spectacular, with 207 yards rushing, 105 receiving, 120 on kickoff returns and 29 on punt returns. He also tossed an 11-yard touchdown pass.
Firing coaches before the end of the season.
Southern California’s Steve Sarkisian, Maryland’s Randy Edsall and Miami’s Al Golden were among those cut loose before the season’s end. One that was rumored to happen but didn’t — LSU’s Les Miles.
SO LONG . . .
