8:06 am
moment, i'd say. if you were watching the rose bowl halftime show yesterday -- you may have notiied it went to a commercial break- before the bands were done playing. and that's believed to be because of ...the stanford marching band... according to an espn report... the group appeared to be making fun of iowa with a farmer themed show. there was a corn maze and this farmer in a hat... there was even a giant cow hat was roaming around the enttre performance. . s you can imagine, hawk fans didn't take kindly to this -- take a listen.... (booing, booing, more booing) when the band finished playing the giant cow was tipped over. after the performance the stanford band responded from their twitter account saying, "glad you like our corn show, iowa. couldn't tell, was that booing or mooing." you may know, the stanford band has a reputation for making fans mad durii their performances. get

in the middle of a time when senior poverty is increasing. republicans and some democrats came up with a brilliant idea for cutting cost-of-living adjustments for social security. we said, "it will be over our dead bodies if you cut social security." as president, i will do everything i can to extend the solvency of social security and expand benefits for people who desperately need them.
8:16 am
the hawkeyes finally arrived yesterday.... kwwl's ron steele and mark woodley rejoin us in pasadena for more on the game... well there's no doubt about it this 45-16 loss to the stanford cardinal -- it's a crushing defeat and it's going to sting for awhile... but what a great experience for the hawkeyes and the tens of thousands of hawkeye fans... you know mark woodley... the one thing -- the game started off poorly for the hawks as stanford's christian mccaffrey scored on the first play from scrimmage... yeah that just took the here's how it went down... 25 years - but it's safe to say mccaffrey across the middle - took the kevin hogan pass to the house - 75 yards - iowa playing mccaffery - but it was kevin hogan - on the keeper from the 8 even worse after quenton meeks
8:17 am
took the beathard pass for the pick 6, stanford's 21 points the most for a team in the first putting up video game numbers - mccaffrey returned a punt 63 yards in the second for a score and had 248 all-purpose yards muster anything - beathard went down 3 times in the first half - iowa embarassed 35, nothing at the break - the second half finally brought something positive as a bad snap on a stanford punt would set the hawks up deep in stanford territory - but all iowa could muster was a 39 yard marshall koehn field goal to break up the shut-out - but in the 4th quarter - they'd get one in to the endzone - beathard with a great toss down the sidelines to matt vandeberg - 36 yards for the score - 38, 9 iowa - and they'd add another as wide open as he'd srint his way to the zone with a nice cut at the end - hawks still down 22 - and they got no closer - kevin hogan makes 'em pay one more

8:18 am
big 42 yard touchdown play - hawkeye fans stuck around until the end - but this one would sting tonight - iowa falls 45, 16 - they're a great team. they took advantage of all our things today. all the small mistakes we really got a chance to stop it. we settled down a bit in the 2nd half, but we dug too deep a hole. we went down 21-nothing early and it's hard to come back from when you get down that much, and christian mccaffery had a whopping 368 yards, i don't know if that's a record or not but it is very impressive... it was just incredible game -- it seemed like like he strong 21 of 33 for 239 yards and two touchdowns.... it just came too little too late... but cj got sacked stanford rush. and this one's
8:19 am
while -- certainly putting a damper on a great season when you look at things like that 12 and oh start -- the future looks very bright with a lot of talent returning -- but i can't imagine anyone on that team is thinking about that right now... tough to win a game with 48 yards rushing... we've steele kwwl news... thanks, guys... there you have it -- certainly not the result many of us here in eastern iowa were hoping for following an amazing, historic year for the hawks... but what a great ride the 2015 season was for this team and so many of us that got to cheer on the hawkeyes... plenty more news to come today... you're watching kwwl. we've got you covered in north liberty,
