Glendale, Ariz. – It was a very exciting game as there was a very strong will power from both camps but the Kickers won from the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.
Oklahoma State is now on third rank and Stanford is now in fourth place.
Cowboy Quinn Sharp worked really hard on his field goal attempts.
Stanford’s Jordan Williamson also tried to win for his team but missed three attempts.
OSU Coach Mike Gundy said, “I felt if we got to overtime, we’d find a way to get it done. What was really neat was offensive firepower on both sides with two future NFL quarterbacks.”
From the early quarters, Stanford was leading the game, but near the overtime, Oklahoma went their way to win the game.
Sharp said on his winning kick, “It was a great feeling. I made a personal mistake last year and let my team down. It was a rough time for me., sitting back home on my couch. I just wanted to make it for the guys.”
Sharp also said that he sympathizes for Williamson.
He said, “It was unfortunate for Stanford’s kicker that he had a rough night. It’s not an easy feeling — everything comes down to you. But it’s a team unit.”
Stanford’s coach David Shaw said, “Bottom line we played our style of football but we did not finish, and not just the kick in the end, In the second half we got the chance to get a couple more stops on defense and we didn’t. We let a long return get out and we shouldnt have.”
“We have always said that you can’t settle for field goals against good teams. whether you make them or miss them,good teams score touchdowns.”
