It had to be pretty fun to be a Stanford Cardinal on New Years Day.

Stanford coasted to a 45-16 victory in the "Grandaddy of them all" over a 12-1 Iowa squad. But, one member of the Cardinal had a pretty special reason to be extra happy.

With Rose Bowl victory celebrations going on all around him, offensive lineman Brendon Austin proposed to his girlfriend Carly Hartman.

Stanford had fun, indeed.
