Stanford football: Christian McCaffrey returns punt for TD in Rose Bowl

  Christian McCaffrey scored on the first play from scrimmage of the Rose Bowl.

Christian McCaffrey sure is making his presence felt in the early goings of the Rose Bowl.

The stud Stanford running back scored a 75-yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage and racked up 139 all-purpose yards in the first quarter. It didn't take long for him to pick up where he left off in the second quarter, as he took a 63-yard punt to the house just 48 seconds into the frame.

McCaffrey is just absolutely shredding Iowa; however, as good as Iowa's defense is, this shouldn't come as a surprise. He was one of the best players in college football this season, finishing second in Heisman Trophy voting and breaking the record for most all-purpose yards in a single season.
