OSU football notebook: Cowboys have shot at top spot in bowl winning percentage

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.

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.
