Michigan State was looking to score a touchdown to take a lead into halftime against Stanford in the Rose Bowl, but quarterback Connor Cook threw a terrible pass that turned into a pick-six.

Stanford's Kevin Anderson took the pass 40 yards for the touchdown, giving his team a 17-7 lead late in the second quarter.

The Cardinal defense pressured Cook, which caused a poor throw. His pass never came close to reaching a receiver, allowing Stanford to extend its lead to 10 points right before the half.
