Was that Barry Sanders out there for Stanford during the team’s 55-17 blowout of Washington State on Saturday? Well, yes, but not exactly the one you’re thinking of.

Of course, the man who retired from the Detroit Lions as one of the greatest running backs of all time is not going to be lacing ‘em up anytime soon.

Instead his son, Barry Sanders Jr., is putting the moves on players for the Cardinal just like pops used to for Oklahoma State and Detroit.

You can see that juking ability in this 16-yard catch and run.

In case you were wondering, yes, this gives us an excuse to post a Barry Sanders highlight clip.
