The Oklahoma State football team learned its bowl game destination on Sunday.

The Cowboys will face off with the Purdue Boilermakers on January 1st in the Heart of Dallas Bowl.

"I don't know a lot about Purdue," coach Mike Gundy said on a teleconference Sunday evening. "I know they're 6-6. I know they let their coach go."

After a loss to Baylor on Saturday, Oklahoma State ended the regular season tied for third in the Big 12 standings, but fell all the way to the eighth bowl game in the picking order.

"The speculation that's been going on for weeks (on which bowl game we'd go to) didn't hold true," Gundy said. "That's why I don't follow it."

The game is played in the original Cotton Bowl, which is where the Red River Rivalry is played every year. It was also the home of the Cotton Bowl game before it was moved to Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.

The game is slated for an 11 a.m. kickoff, and will be televised by ESPNU.
