IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

The Iowa Hawkeyes are headed to the Rose Bowl. 

The official announcement came Sunday afternoon as the Hawks are set to meet up with Stanford in the January 1st game.

The bowl selected Iowa following a 12-1 season, with the only loss coming in the final seconds to 3rd ranked Michigan State in Saturday night's Big Ten Championship game.

The Rose Bowl appearance will be the first for Iowa since the 1991 season. That game saw the 17th ranked Hawkeyes fall to #8 Washington 46-34.
