Oklahoma State finishes 3rd, goes to Fiesta
By Richard Durrett
Oklahoma State did all they could with an impressive win over Oklahoma on Saturday, but it wasn't enough to get past Alabama, who finished No. 2 in the BCS.
The Cowboys will head to the Fiesta Bowl and play Stanford. Alabama gets a rematch with No. 1 and SEC champion LSU. The Tigers won the first meeting between the club earlier this season. Alabama was No. 2 in both polls used for the BCS formula -- Harris Poll and Coaches' Poll.
The standings were officially released on ESPN tonight.
