Head Coach: Kirk Ferentz
Attendance: 50,123
Kickoff Temp: 56° F
Start Time: 7:07 PM CST


Iowa's Ihmir Smith-Marsette scored on a 6-yard run, a 98-yard kickoff return and a 12-yard reception -- all in the second quarter -- to lead Iowa to a 49-24 rout of No. 22 USC. The Hawkeyes won their fourth straight game for their sixth 10-win season in coach Kirk Ferentz's 21 years. The Hawkeyes honored both Hayden Fry, the former coach who died Dec. 17 at age 90, and Bump Elliott, a former athletic director who died Dec. 7 at 94. Senior Nate Stanley became the fifth Iowa quarterback to start three bowl games. He won all three. Against USC, he was 18 of 27 for 213 yards with 2 touchdown passes. There was a moment of silence before the national anthem for Fry. Iowa also paid tribute to Fry by removing the Tigerhawk decals from its helmets. Fry introduced the logo during his 20-year tenure, which included trips to the Holiday Bowl in 1986, 1987 and 1991.
