RECAP

Bob Jeter ran for 194 yards on nine carries, earned Player-of-the-Game honors and led Iowa to a 38-12 win over California in the 45th Rose Bowl. Over 18,000 Iowa fans made the trip to Pasadena. Head Coach Forest Evashevski had to get out of his sickbed to lead Iowa to its second Rose Bowl win in three years. Willie Fleming tallied twice for the winners. Fleming had 85 yards (nine attempts) on the ground. The Hawkeyes set Rose Bowl records for total offense (516) and rushing offense (429). Jeter's 21.6 yards per carry average and his 81-yard TD run were Rose Bowl records. The video contains some clips of the game, but most of the video is from the entire trip.
