Oklahoma State fans, here’s a reason to watch another bowl game with stronger-than-usual interest.

With some help from Vanderbilt, OSU will have a chance at the highest bowl winning percentage of any NCAA Division I team with at least 15 bowl appearances.

Boston College is the current leader at .684 (13-6) heading into the Music City Bowl on New Year’s Eve. That mark would fall to .650 with a loss to Vandy.

Penn State’s winning percentage is .675 (26-12-2) entering the Rose Bowl game against Southern Cal on New Year’s Day.

OSU’s winning percentage of .667 (12-6) currently ranks third but would jump to .684 with a win over Oregon in the Holiday Bowl. Even if Penn State beats USC in the Rose, its winning percentage would only improve to .683.

COWBOYS VS. PAC-10
The Holiday Bowl marks the first meeting between OSU and Oregon, and the Cowboys’ 17th game overall against a Pac-10 team. OSU is 7-9 against the conference and does not have a winning record against any of the five teams it has played.

OSU and Arizona have split their six meetings.
