ROSE BOWL: A perfect season ended in the final seconds in the Big Ten title game, Iowa's consolation prize is a spot in the Rose Bowl against Pac-12 champion Stanford on Jan. 1.

The Hawkeyes (12-1, No. 5 CFP) beat out Ohio State to earn their first trip to Pasadena since Jan. 1, 1991.

Iowa put together a surprising 12-0 regular season before falling agonizingly short of the four-team playoff, losing to Michigan State on Saturday night.

While the Hawkeyes haven't made the Rose Bowl in a generation, Pasadena has become a second home for Stanford.

The Cardinal (11-2, No. 6 CFP) earned their third Rose Bowl berth in four years by beating Southern California on Saturday night.
