Oklahoma State football wins NCAA title
Oklahoma State University has secured its first-ever conference championship and will host the national championship game on Dec. 12, according to the university.
The school announced the announcement Friday.
The school has won the last three Big 12 titles, including a pair of national championships, and is in its sixth year as the conference’s top-ranked team.
The Cowboys have won the conference regular season title twice and the Cotton Bowl in three of the last four seasons.
They are the first Big 12 team to win consecutive Big 12 championship games.
Oklahoma State football has the highest winning percentage in the nation, winning 54.7 percent of its games since the 2015 season.
The program is now 21-1 in the Big 12 Conference.
The Cowboys are the only team in the country to reach the Cotton and the Sugar Bowls and have a winning record in the Sugar or Cotton.
Oklahoma State will play its home opener at Oklahoma State Stadium, with the game scheduled for 7 p.m.
The Cotton Bowl will be played at Oklahoma Stadium, which was named for the Cotton football team’s legendary coach, Bob Stoops.
It will be the first game in school history to be played in its home stadium.
The Cotton Bowl is the only bowl game in the SEC to feature a nonconference opponent.
The bowl game is the first bowl game to feature two teams from the same conference.
In addition, the Big East has added an all-ACC bowl game, with a matchup between Rutgers and Miami in New Jersey on Feb. 12.
