(AP) — The Fiesta Bowl will have a marquee matchup in its first post-scandal game — No. 3 Oklahoma State vs. No. 4 Stanford.

The Fiesta Bowl had a dud of a game last year and nearly lost its BCS status after an investigation into financial improprieties.

Bowl organizers worked hard to restore its image and landed a golden game between the Cardinal and the Cowboys.

Oklahoma State (11-1) fell just short in its national championship bid, finishing third in the final BCS standings.

Stanford (11-1) lost its chance to play for the national title with a loss to Oregon, but will be playing in a BCS bowl for the second straight season.

The Jan. 2 game also will include two premier quarterbacks: Brandon Weeden of Oklahoma State and Stanford's Andrew Luck.
