Stanford redshirt sophomore RB Barry J. Sanders rushed for 68 yards in the school's 34-17 win over Washington State.
Sanders had rushes of 21 and 29 yards in the first quarter, but neither was overly impressive. He picked up yards blocked for him but did not showcase the jump cut that made his father famous, something he has flashed in the past. Still, a yards per carry rate of 9.7 is very good. Oct 11 - 9:35 AM
