Oklahoma State did all they could with an impressive win over Oklahoma on Saturday, but it wasn't enough to get past Alabama, who finished No. 2 in the BCS.
The Cowboys will head to the Fiesta Bowl and play Stanford. Alabama gets a rematch with No. 1 and SEC champion LSU. The Tigers won the first meeting between the club earlier this season. Alabama was No. 2 in both polls used for the BCS formula -- Harris Poll and Coaches' Poll.
The standings were officially released on ESPN tonight.
