The No. 5 Iowa Hawkeyes will serve as the home team when they take on the No. 6 Stanford Cardinal in the Rose Bowl.

With both teams just missing the cut for the College Football Playoff, the Hawkeyes and Cardinal will meet in the 102nd installment of “The Granddaddy of Them All” in Pasadena, Calif.

Iowa earned its first trip to the Rose Bowl since 1991 after posting a 12–1 record this season, including a win over Ohio State. Stanford makes its third trip to Pasadena in four years after defeating USC in the Pac-12 championship game. Stanford is 1–1 in its Rose Bowl appearances in that stretch.
