Fiesta Bowl 2012 Score Update: Stanford Fumbles, Holds Oklahoma State To Field Goal

The Oklahoma State defense has turned over its opponents with great success this season. But the Cowboys, who answered every Stanford touchdown in the first half, could not turn a fortuitous fumble recovery into seven points from just outside the Cardinal end zone.

Oklahoma State trails Stanford 28-24 nearing the end of the third quarter in the 2012 Fiesta Bowl.

Cowboys quarterback Brandon Weeden missed a wide-open target in the end zone on third-and-goal and Oklahoma State settled for a field goal. It was a missed opportunity for the Cowboys, who recovered the ball on the Cardinal four-yard-line.
