DALLAS (AP) - There are a couple of games Oklahoma State would like to have back.
Purdue certainly feels the same way, especially with the near-misses the Boilermakers had on the road against two of the nation's undefeated teams.
By losing its last two games by a combined 10 points, Oklahoma State became one of five Big 12 teams that finished 7-5 and slid down the league's bowl pecking order.
The Boilermakers (6-6), who had tight losses at top-ranked Notre Dame and No. 3 Ohio State, recovered from a five-game Big Ten losing streak midway through the season by winning their last three games just to get bowl eligible.
On Tuesday, they play in the inaugural Heart of Dallas Bowl at historic Cotton Bowl Stadium.
