Stan­ford wins big

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS - THE AS­SO­CI­ATED PRESS

Stan­ford barely missed out on the Col­lege Foot­ball Play­off, and Chris­tian McCaf­frey al­most won the Heis­man Tro­phy.

McCaf­frey and the mighty Car­di­nal didn't miss a thing in their Rose Bowl romp over Iowa.

McCaf­frey caught a 75-yard touch­down pass on the open­ing snap and re­turned a punt 66 yards for an­other score while set­ting the Rose Bowl record with 368 all-pur­pose yards, pro­pel­ling No. 5 Stan­ford to a 45-16 vic­tory over the sixth-ranked Hawkeyes on Fri­day.

Kevin Ho­gan passed for 223 yards and three TDs in his fi­nal game for the Car­di­nal (12-2), who won the Rose Bowl for the sec­ond time in three trips over the past four years for this un­likely foot­ball pow­er­house.
