PHOENIX (AP) - In a matchup of tradition-laden programs, the
Fiesta Bowl will pair Texas against Ohio State on Jan. 5.
The Fiesta had to replace Big 12 champion Oklahoma, which will
play in the Bowl Championship Series title game. It picked up
third-ranked Texas and then selected the 10th-ranked, twice-beaten
Buckeyes on Sunday.
The Longhorns (11-1) finished in a three-way tie atop the rugged
Big 12 South and thought their 10-point victory over Oklahoma
should have earned them the nod over the Sooners. But Oklahoma was
declared the division winner on a BCS standings tiebreaker, and the
Sooners ripped Missouri in the Big 12 title game to earn a trip to
Miami for the national title game.
