There was plenty of joy to go around after the Stanford Cardinal's 45-16 Rose Bowl win over the Iowa Hawkeyes on Friday.
For some players, it took life in the form of "We Want Bama!" chants led by guard Josh Garnett as they headed into the tunnel.
For fellow guard Brendon Austin, who opted for a different chant, it took shape in the form of a proposal to his girlfriend:
Thanks for the unbelievable support from all! A Rose Bowl victory along with my engagement to @carlyhartman15 is truly a dream come true!— Brendon Austin (@Aust1n74) January 2, 2016
