  09/03/22 - RB E.J. SmithSr/2024, Stanford

  Tanner McKee threw two touchdown passes to Michael Wilson and Stanford routed FCS Colgate 41-10 on Saturday night in a season opener for both teams. "All offseason, he's been the guy," Stanford coach David Shaw said of his quarterback. "Leader on the football team. Voted a captain...We have high expectations for him as well." E.J. Smith, the son of former Dallas Cowboys star Emmitt Smith, had career bests with 118 yards rushing and five catches while running for two touchdowns to help the Cardinal snap a seven-game losing streak that dated to last season. "It's a great opportunity," Smith said of being named the starting running back. "There's been great running backs here in the past. Bryce, Christian and so forth. To be able to have that opportunity is a blessing." Stanford is 10-2 in home openers and 9-3 in season openers under Shaw.

Colgate marked the second opponent and third game against a FCS team in Shaw's 11-year tenure. On Stanford's first play from scrimmage, Smith cut left and raced into the end zone for an 87-yard touchdown. That tied Nathaniel Peat for the fifth-longest touchdown run in the program. Smith's previous career high was 54 yards rushing against Utah last season. Smith added another 37 yards receiving. "I said it on the headset, but that's how you start the season," Shaw said. "We know that E.J. is strong and physical. He's got that finishing speed, too. Great way to start the season." McKee was 22 of 27 for 308 yards passing and was relieved for Ari Patu at the start of the fourth quarter, who threw a 7-yard touchdown to true freshman Mudia Reuben. - Stanford/AP College Football
