The Fiesta Bowl always seems to provide the best of the BCS season.
In a game that featured top-tier NFL talent on both offenses, Oklahoma State Cowboys and the Stanford Cardinal faced off in a classic battle that left the Cowboys victorious.
Although it took until overtime, Oklahoma State defeated the Cardinal, 41-38.
Now the BCS bashing begins again. Oklahoma State finishes the season with one loss to Iowa State—a game they played a day after losing two key members of their athletic program.
I have argued since the beginning that the Cowboys deserved to play in the national title against LSU for many reasons. With this win, Oklahoma State only further validated the talent of their team.
This is still college football, so there is one final poll to come out at the end of the season. There are questions looming in the back of Cowboys fans minds: Will Oklahoma State receive any number one votes in the final polls? If so, will there be enough for a title share?
Unfortunately for Oklahoma State, there are three key reasons preventing this from happening.
