Cowboys drop Luck, Cardinal

-A A +A
By Associated Press

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Oklahoma State has its chance to be in the national-championship conversation.
All the Cowboys need now is a little help from Alabama.
Surviving a missed field goal at the end of regulation and getting a big kick of its own in overtime, No. 3 Oklahoma State opened the door for the chance at a split national championship with a wildly entertaining 41-38 win over the No. 4 Stanford Cardinal on Monday night.
“There is nothing we can do from here,” said Oklahoma State receiver Justin Blackmon, who tied the Fiesta Bowl record with three touchdown catches. “I do think we do have the best team in the nation.”
Oklahoma State (12-1) kept pace with Andrew Luck and the high-scoring Cardinal, getting huge performances from its two stars, Brandon Weeden and Blackmon, in their final college game.
 Weeden threw for 399 yards and the three touchdowns to Blackmon, who announced he’s leaving for the NFL after catching eight passes for 186 yards.
All that and the Cowboys’ fortunes came down to two legs, those of Stanford kicker Jordan Williamson and their own Jordan Sharp.
Williamson couldn’t come through. The redshirt freshman missed a 35-yard field goal wide left as time expired in regulation and another from 43 yards to open overtime.
