Big 12 champion Oklahoma against Big East champion West Virginia in Fiesta Bowl

  • Follow College

West Virginia will face No. 3 Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl, a matchup of conference champions who had their national title hopes dashed in the last three weeks.

The 11th-ranked Mountaineers (10-2) were a victory away from the national title game, but were upset by Pittsburgh 13-9 on Saturday night. The Big East champions received their second BCS bid in the last three years Sunday night.

The Sooners (11-2) won the Big 12 and an automatic berth in the Fiesta Bowl with a 38-17 victory over Missouri, but a loss at Texas Tech two weeks earlier cost Oklahoma a shot at the national title.
