From our Rose Bowl Recap:

"On the very first play from the line of scrimmage Kevin Hogan, in his third start in the Rose Bowl throws a strike to Christian McCaffrey for a 75-yard touchdown. 11 seconds into the game and Stanford was up by seven. The Iowa offense took the field hoping to respond. After a each team had a false start Iowa went three and out.

On the Cardinal's second possession it took a few more plays but once again Iowa had no answer for Christian McCaffrey and the Stanford offense. After several explosive plays from McCaffrey it was Kevin Hogan who finished off the drive with an easy run as McCaffrey drew 9 Iowa defenders in the opposite direction. Only half way through the first quarter and the Cardinal was up 14-0.

On Iowa's second possession the Hawkeyes' offense began moving the ball down field against Stanford's bend but don't break defense. That was, of course, until Quenton Meeks, who has a knack for finding the ball, intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown. With about four minutes left in the first quarter the Cardinal were up 21-0 to wrap up the first quarter."
