Stanford cornerback Quenton Meeks took back a first-quarter pick-six to give the Cardinal a 21–0 lead over Iowa in the Rose Bowl.

Meeks, a freshman, jumped an out route and intercepted Iowa quarterback C.J. Beathard, taking the ball 66 yards the other way for the score, as part of No. 6 Stanford’s dominant first quarter.
