When Oklahoma State quarterback Zac Robinson learned his head coach had caught a pass in the 1988 Holiday Bowl, his eyes lit up and immediately begged that he get the same opportunity.

Robinson got his wish on the second play of the fourth quarter in Tuesday night's Holiday Bowl when Cowboys coach Mike Gundy called for a throwback pass to Robinson from wide receiver Bo Bowling, who played quarterback in junior college.

The play gained 21 yards for a first down at the Ducks' 14-yard line and helped set up a touchdown that gave OSU a 31-28 lead.

Twenty years earlier, Gundy caught a 17-yard throwback pass from Heisman Trophy winner Barry Sanders and finished 1 yard short of the end zone on the play.

When initially told Robinson's request for a throwback pass, Gundy joked, "He's not as athletic as I was."
