How they got here
Oklahoma State (11-2, 7-2 Big 12) did almost everything they could do this season except make one last play in Arlington for the league trophy. Spencer Sanders threw for 2468 yards and 16 touchdowns this season, but also 12 interceptions and looked inconsistent at times. Compared to the Mike Gundy teams of the past this one was much more defensively minded, allowing more than 30 points just once in a 37-33 win over Oklahoma in Bedlam.
Notre Dame (11-1) only had one blemish this year against Cincinnati, and it turned out to be the difference between them playing in the College Football Playoff and the New Year’s Six. With new head coach Marcus Freeman taking over for Brian Kelly, we should get a sense of how the Fighting Irish will move forward in 2022 under new leadership.
