The PlayStation Fiesta Bowl will feature a matchup between the Oklahoma State Cowboys and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish from State Farm Stadium. The ninth-ranked Cowboys (11-2) won eight of their nine Big 12 Conference games and ranked eighth nationally in scoring defense (16.8 ppg). In the Big 12 Conference Championship game, Oklahoma State was stopped at the goal line in the final second of a 21-16 loss against Baylor.

Oklahoma State QB Spencer Sanders threw for 257 yards, but was unable to overcome four costly interceptions. Tay Martin hauled in nine passes for 88 yards in a losing effort for the Cowboys.
