MIAMI (AP) - Stymied by the Iowa Hawkeyes' swarming defense,
Georgia Tech found itself out of options.
No. 10 Iowa solved Tech's explosive triple option and Ricky
Stanzi threw two early touchdown passes for a 24-14 victory Tuesday
night in the coldest Orange Bowl ever.
Temperature at kickoff was 49 degrees, and Tech's offense was
slow to warm up. The ninth-ranked Yellow Jackets averaged 35 points
during the regular season, but their only score in the first three
quarters came on Jerrard Tarrant's 40-yard interception return.
The Hawkeyes (11-2) earned their first Bowl Championship Series
bowl win, matched the school record for victories and could claim
their highest final ranking since finishing No. 3 in 1960.
