Dec. 07, 2014
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Oklahoma State will face Washington in the Cactus Bowl.
Oklahoma State needed to win its final game to become eligible after losing five straight. The Cowboys (6-6) did it in dramatic fashion, beating rival Oklahoma 38-35 in overtime after Tyreek Hill returned a punt 92 yards for a touchdown with 45 seconds left in regulation.
Washington (8-5) won eight games in its first season under former Boise State coach Chris Petersen, most in school history for a first-year coach. The Huskies closed out the season with victories over Oregon State and rival Washington State in the Apple Cup.
The Cactus Bowl will be played Jan. 2 at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe.
