BOULDER, Colo. — The University of Colorado football team will face former conference rival Oklahoma State in the Alamo Bowl, it was announced Sunday.

The Buffaloes (10-3) finished No. 10 in the College Football Playoff rankings, dropping from No. 8 after a loss to Washington in the Pac-12 championship game on Friday night.

The Buffaloes were hoping for their first berth in the Rose Bowl, but USC, which finished ninth in the rankings, will represent the Pac-12 in the prestigious game on Jan. 2.

This was CU’s first winning season since 2005. The Buffaloes were Pac-12 South Division champions for the first time since joining the conference.

After turning the team around, coach Mike MacIntre was named the Walter Camp national coach of the year as well as the Pac-12 coach of the year.
