Did Republican Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina just ditch her alma mater Stanford and root instead for the Iowa Hawkeyes to win the Rose Bowl? It appears as though she did.

Love my alma mater, but rooting for a Hawkeyes win today. #RoseBowl


Fiorina's newfound allegiance was not sitting well with many people Friday.

The Iowa Caucus will take place in February. In recent polls, Fiorina has trailed frontrunner Donald Trump, as well as several other candidates, in the race for the Republican nomination.

Fiorina is surrounded by other Republican presidential candidates at a debate in Colorado on Oct. 28.

But by halftime Friday, it didn't look like Stanford was affected by Fiorina's lack of support. The California school was leading 35-0.

At the half, #Stanford leads #Iowa 35-0. The 35 points are the most by a team in the first half of a #RoseBowl.
