Nearly a month after falling inches shy of a Big 12 title, Oklahoma State has one final chance for a statement on a national stage.

The No. 9-ranked Cowboys face No. 5-ranked Notre Dame at noon Saturday in the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Arizona.

It’s the Cowboys’ (11-2, 8-1 Big 12) first meeting with Notre Dame (11-1).
