Fiesta Bowl 2012: Oklahoma State Vs. Stanford

The Oklahoma St. Cowboys and the Stanford Cardinal will face each other in the 2012 Fiesta Bowl, reports Stewart Mandel of Sports Illustrated. The Cowboys's hopes of moving ahead of the Alabama Crimson Tide never materialized while the Stanford Cardinal received an at-large bid to a BCS game.

The Tostitos Fiesta Bowl is played annually in Glendale, Arizona. In 1998, the Fiesta bowl became part of the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) and is now part of a rotation that also hosts the BCS National Title game. The Fiesta Bowl was the host to one of the most memorable upsets in recent BCS memory. The Boise State Broncos put themselves on the map by defeating Okalahoma, 43-42, that has been dubbed one of the greatest college football games ever played.

Typically the Fiesta Bowl hosts the Big 12 conference champion, unless they are hosting the National Title game. The game will be broadcast live on ESPN and streamed on ESPN3, the game will be called by Sean McDonough, Matt Millen, and Heather Cox.

Game date, time: 8:30 pm ET, Monday, January 2nd
