Rose Bowl: McCaffrey leads Stanford to win over Iowa

This time last year, Iowa was getting scortched by Tennessee in the TaxSlayer Bowl to cap a disappointing 7-6 season that set in motion an offseason of tumult. Kirk Ferentz examined his program and made alterations, including switching practices from afternoon to morning. But most prescient, Ferentz tabbed C.J. Beathard the QB over Jake Rudock shortly after the loss to the Vols. Rudock transferred to Michigan, Beathard became a star and the rest is history.

Iowa fans are going all out for Rose Bowl tickets

Are you an Iowa Hawkeye fan? Are you trying to get a ticket to see the Hawkeyes take on Stanford in the Rose Bowl? Well… Good luck. According to KCRG-TV9 reporter Mark Carlson, the University of Iowa has received nearly 40,000 Rose Bowl ticket requests to fill an allotment of 22,000 fans. Rose Bowl fever is at an all-time high for an Iowa Hawkeyes program that hasn’t played in the game since the 1990 season. After 25 years, expect Hawkeye fans to pay a pretty penny to see their team in Pasadena. According to Matt Cozzi of, the official

Big Ten links: Which team would go to the Rose Bowl?

The Rose Bowl committee has been adamant that it will select the highest-rated CFP Big Ten team to replace the champion if it is selected for the playoffs. This is bad news for the loser of the Big Ten title game—Iowa or Michigan State. The winner will skip off to the playoffs. The loser? It figures to be passed in the rankings by Ohio State, which means the Buckeyes would be tabbed for the Rose Bowl despite not winning their division. It makes no sense. But, there is some wiggle room for the Rose Bowl to call an audible and

BTN LiveBIG: From the gridiron to the boardroom, a former Illini football player leads and serves

As a defensive lineman for the Fighting Illini, Kambium “Kam” Buckner had plenty of memorable moments. Upsetting then-No. 1 Ohio State in Columbus in November 2007. Playing in the Rose Bowl on New Year’s Day of 2008. But the game that sticks out most in his mind came two seasons prior, at Illinois’ home opener against a Rutgers team that was stacked with talented players — Jason McCourty and Ray Rice, to name a couple. Despite the fact that the Scarlet Knights were favored, Buckner and his teammates fought hard and pulled out a 33-30 overtime win in Memorial Stadium.

MSU's Elsworth, Spartans enjoy storybook ending

LOS ANGELES — Can every fairy tail season truly have a memorable storybook ending? If you saw what transpired during the 100th annual Rose Bowl Game on Wednesday night in Pasadena Ca., you have to believe that is true. What else could explain Michigan State’s unforgettable 24-20 win over Stanford and the performance of senior linebacker Kyler Elsworth.

Tom's Take: Too bad there isn't a playoff this year

Michigan State arrived at its first Rose Bowl in 26 years as an underdog to Stanford. But the Spartans left as champs in a thoroughly dominating performance that left no doubt about Michigan State’s status as one of the nation’s top teams. Too bad there isn’t a playoff this season. The Spartans finished 13-1, with the lone defeat being a 17-13 setback at Notre Dame that involved some iffy pass interference calls vs. MSU. It also won each of its first 12 games by double digits and halted then-No. 2 Ohio State’s 24-game winning streak. [ MORE: BOX | PLAY-BY-PLAY |

LOS ANGELES — Michigan State fans from across the nation traveled to see their beloved Spartans play in the 100th Rose Bowl Game on Wednesday. But once the clock hit 0:00 and the scoreboard read 24-20 in favor of MSU, there wasn’t anyone with a bigger smile across his face than former Spartan quarterback Kirk Cousins. I caught up with Cousins in the locker room following the Spartans’ memorable Rose Bowl victory.
