Christian McCaffrey launched Stanford's 45-16 scoring rampage over Iowa in the Rose Bowl yesterday when he thundered for the end zone on a 75 yard touchdown pass within the first 20 seconds of the first quarter.

The Stanford running back broke free on the first down of the game and collected the pass from quarterback Kevin Hogan before taking off at pace and scoring from scrimmage to leave the Cardinals with a 7-0 lead.

McCaffrey resumed his form in the second quarter when he nailed a 63 yard return punt touchdown to extend Stanford's lead to 28-0.
