Luck runs out: Cowboys down Cardinal in Fiesta Bowl

Luck was apparently on the Cowboys' side.

Oklahoma State never led in regulation of the Fiesta Bowl, but the Big 12 champions didn't have to in pulling out a wild, 41-38, overtime victory over the Stanford Cardinal.

Andrew Luck was in line to end his stellar Stanford career with a second straight BCS bowl victory, but Jordan Williamson missed a 35-yard field goal on the final play of the fourth quarter.

The fourth-ranked Cardinal (11-2) failed to net any yards on the first possession of overtime, and Williamson was wide left for the third time of the night on the ensuing 43-yard attempt.

Colton Chelf appeared to catch the game-winning pass two plays later, but was pulled down at the one-foot line after hauling in Brandon Weeden's pass over the middle.

The replay reversal of Chelf's touchdown simply delayed the inevitable, as Quinn Sharp's 22-yard chip shot split the uprights to secure the first 12-win season in Oklahoma State (12-1) history.
