Christian McCaffrey wasted no time.

Well, technically 11 seconds.

The Stanford running back and 2015 Heisman Trophy runner-up broke loose on the first down of the game, running in a 75-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Kevin Hogan to help lift the Cardinal to an early 7-0 start over the Iowa Hawkeyes in Friday's Rose Bowl.

The Wild Caff show continued in the second quarter when he returned a punt 63 yards for another touchdown, extending Stanford's lead to 28-0:
