OKLAHOMA CITY – 

Three thousand, six hundred fifty-two. What is its significance to this New Year’s Day showdown in the desert?

Is it the number of passing yards Spencer Sanders threw this season? Is it the answer to “How many seasons of Notre Dame football are there?”

Nope and close, but also nope.

Oklahoma State football went 3,652 days – that’s nine full years, 11 months and 30 days – in between its last appearance in the Fiesta Bowl. Had OSU and Notre Dame faced off Sunday, Jan. 2, it would have been 10 full years to the day.

The 2012 Fiesta Bowl overtime win over Stanford was also the last time the Cowboys won a New Year’s Six bowl game.

If you watched the first half of the game long enough to see OSU fall behind 21 points, who can blame you? Cowboy football fandom can be a trying experience. It’s not how you’d want to start 2022.

But the Cowboys surprised their opponent, and perhaps themselves, by knocking off Notre Dame in a historic 37-35 comeback victory Saturday at the 2022 Fiesta Bowl.
