Fiesta Bowl 2012, Stanford Vs. Oklahoma State: Time, TV Schedule, Odds And More

In what might be the best bowl match up of the season, the Stanford Caridnal get ready to take on the Oklahoma State Cowboys in the 2012 Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Arizona. The Cardinal missed out getting to the Pac 12 title game when they lost to Oregon and Andrew Luck missed out on the Heisman Trophy to Robert Griffin III but Stanford can still go out with a BCS victory. The Cardinal offense averages over 40 points per game and runs the ball for over 200 yards a game, even with having Andrew Luck under center. It's not all about offense however, as the Cardinal defense gives up just 20.3 points per game.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys missed out on a chance at the BCS National Title when they fell on the road in an upset to Iowa State. "I don't think anybody that was in our position could say that they didn't have some disappointment to not have an opportunity to play for it all," said Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy. Like Stanford, Oklahoma State brings an explosive offense that features quarterback Brandon Weeden and wide receiver Justin Blackmon. "The quarterback and receiver combo, Weeden to Blackmon, is outstanding to watch as a football fan," Stanford head coach David Shaw said. While the Oklahoma State defense gives up a lot of yardage and points, they also get a lot of turnovers for their offense. They'll need to force Luck to make some mistakes to keep his time consuming offense off the field.

Game date, time: 8:30 p.m. ET, Monday, January 2nd

Location: University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, AZ

TV channel: ESPN/ESPN3

Odds: Oklahoma State favored by -3
