GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Oklahoma State and Stanford will not get a chance to play for a national championship.

They will play in what could be the most exciting bowl of the season: The Fiesta Bowl.

With 2 of the nation's best teams, explosive offenses and prolific quarterbacks, the third-ranked Cowboys and fourth-ranked Cardinal figure to put on quite a show at University of Phoenix Stadium on Monday night.

The teams' quarterbacks will take center stage in their final games.

Stanford's Andrew Luck is a 2-time runner-up for the Heisman Trophy and the projected No. 1 overall NFL draft pick.

Oklahoma State's Brandon Weeden is no slouch, either, a former minor league baseball player who can make all the throws.
