The Big XII runner up and No. 12 ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys received their bowl bid and accepted an invitation to meet the No. 10 ranked Colorado Buffaloes in San Antonio’s premier college event, The 23rd Annual Valero Alamo Bowl held in the home of the University of Texas San Antonio Roadrunners, the Alamodome.
“We’re extremely excited to be playing in San Antonio in the Valero Alamo Bowl,” CU coach Mike MacIntyre said. “Oklahoma State is an excellent team, really high-powered. Mike (Gundy) has done a real good job there, and it’s going to be a heck of a football game with a great atmosphere.”
Oklahoma State had a seven game winning streak working until this Saturday when they were dismantled by the Oklahoma Sooners 38-20 for the Big XII Championship. Colorado is coming off a 41-10 loss to eventual PAC 12 Champion Washington Friday night.
