Christian McCaffrey was told he lost a Heisman vote because a voter didn't stay up for his games

Four years removed, Christian McCaffrey isn’t mad he came in second in the 2015 Heisman vote. It’s not like his professional career has suffered.

But he can’t help but laugh when he thinks about one of the reasons he might have lost.

In an interview with The Athletic published Thursday, the Carolina Panthers’ star running back revealed that a voter once apologized for not giving him their vote. The reason why? The voter simply hadn’t seen enough of McCaffrey’s games — they were often asleep when Stanford’s games started.

“You just have to laugh it off,” McCaffrey said.
