RECAP

Eric Ball, a second-string freshman tailback, scored four touchdowns and ran for 227 yards. Ronnie Harmon lost four fumbles in the first half, and dropped a TD pass later in the game.

UCLA also got surprise play from Matt Stevens, the substitute quarterback. He passed for one touchdown and scored on a half-yard quarterback sneak. Chuck Long completed 29 of 37 passes for 319 yards and a touchdown for Iowa, but was sacked for a total of 34 yards.

Note: The Rose Bowl is where UCLA plays its home games, but since its a bowl game, I marked it as a neutral site.

PLAYER GAME QUOTES

Ronnie Harmon It's one of those things. It was probably the worst day I ever had in my four years at Iowa, but you can't look back. I feel fine now. That's like asking me if I can forget my broken leg.
-- Ronnie Harmon
When asked about his 4 fumbles in the Rose Bowl.

COACH GAME QUOTES

Hayden Fry Ronnie Harmon ran as hard as anyone on the field when he had the ball. He fumbled one time the whole year before tonight. Ronnie is a great person, and he is very hurt right now. It happens to all great athletes at one time and it's a shame it happened in the Rose Bowl.
-- Hayden Fry
Discussing Ronnie Harmon's 4 fumbles in the game.

Hayden Fry I didn't know who he was, they were all running by me so fast.
-- Hayden Fry
When asked about UCLA backup RB Eric Ball, who ran for 228 yards in the Rose Bowl
