STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey will skip the Sun Bowl game to prepare for the NFL draft.

He announced the decision on his Twitter feed Monday. No. 16 Stanford plays North Carolina on Dec. 30 in El Paso, Texas.

McCaffrey said last month he would be skipping his senior season.

He was the Heisman Trophy runner-up in 2015 as a sophomore when he set the NCAA record for all-purpose yards in a season.
