STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma State will return to the Holiday Bowl for the first time since Barry Sanders' Heisman Trophy season 20 years ago, and face No. 15 Oregon of the Pac-10 Conference.
The 13th-ranked Cowboys are going to a bowl game for the sixth time in the last seven years and will try to tie the school record with a 10th win. It will be Oklahoma State's first meeting with the Ducks, who also finished this season 9-3.
The Cowboys last played in the Holiday Bowl in 1988 against Wyoming and came away with a 62-14 win.
Mike Gundy was the quarterback of that OSU team, and he'll become the first person ever to play and coach in a Holiday Bowl.
The game will be played in San Diego on Dec. 30.
