The final installment of our “Behind Enemy Lines” series takes us to the offices of The Daily Iowan in Iowa City, where Do-Hyoung Park (@dohyoungpark) is joined by Danny Payne (@dannyapayne), the editor of The Daily Iowan Pregame, to discuss the Stanford-Iowa matchup in the 102nd Rose Bowl this Friday and the associated storylines behind the game.
