Stanford band trolls Iowa with ‘Farmers Only’ halftime show
The Rose Bowl started off with a bang thanks to Heisman Trophy finalist and Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey’s electrifying 75-yard touchdown catch. But the rout was on by halftime, as the Cardinal had built a 35-point lead over the Iowa Hawkeyes — much to Carly Fiorina’s dismay.
Things only got worse for Hawkeyes fans during the break, although this time Stanford’s band was causing the pain instead of the team.
Stanford’s band mocked Iowa with a frowning farmer, a cow and some not-to-subtle digs at FarmersOnly.com.

I guess this is Stanford dissing farmers? Maybe? Hard to tell. pic.twitter.com/Cm2Mb9Grt3

Needless to say, Iowa fans weren’t pleased. Apparently ESPN wasn’t either because it cut away from the halftime show.
