PHOENIX (AP) -In a matchup of tradition-laden programs, the Fiesta Bowl will pair Texas against Ohio State on Jan. 5.
The Fiesta had to replace Big 12 champion Oklahoma, which will play in the Bowl Championship Series title game. It picked up third-ranked Texas and then selected the 10th-ranked, twice-beaten Buckeyes on Sunday.
The Longhorns (11-1) finished in a three-way tie atop the rugged Big 12 South and thought their 10-point victory over Oklahoma should have earned them the nod over the Sooners. But Oklahoma was declared the division winner on a BCS standings tiebreaker, and the Sooners ripped Missouri in the Big 12 title game to earn a trip to Miami for the national title game.
