 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  Oklahoma State was a step slow in the first half, appearing to be stuck in the desert sand while Notre Dame raced around the field. A quick scoring drive just before halftime gave the No. 9 Cowboys a spark and they rode it one of the biggest victories in school history. Led by Spencer Sanders, Oklahoma State pulled off the biggest comeback in Fiesta Bowl history, overcoming a 21-point deficit to beat No. 5 Notre Dame 37-35 on Saturday. Sanders accounted for 496 yards and threw three of his four touchdown passes to Tay Martin, including a 9-yarder to cap a four-play, 75-yard drive just before halftime. "Us going down and scoring quickly just before the half, that gave us hope," Oklahoma State Mike Gundy said. "That gave us a chance as coaches to say, "Guys, we're fine." Oklahoma State (12-2, No. 9 CFP) came up inches short of securing a College Football Playoff spot in a loss to No. 6 Baylor at the Big 12 title game and fell into 21-point, first-half hole against Notre Dame (11-2, No. 5 CFP).

Jack Coan led Notre Dame's early charge while throwing for a Fiesta Bowl-record 509 yards and five touchdowns. Sanders and Martin brought the Cowboys back. Sanders, who had a 9-yard touchdown pass to Jaden Bray in the first quarter, cut Notre Dame's lead to 28-14 with a 9-yard scoring pass to Martin with 37 seconds left in the first half. The pair connected for two more touchdowns, from 5 and 8 yards, to tie the game, and the Cowboys went up 34-28 on three field goals by Tanner Brown. Sanders threw for 371 yards on 34-of-51 passing and ran for 125 yards after throwing four interceptions in the Big 12 title game. - Oklahoma State/AP College Football
