SAN DIEGO (AP) _ Oklahoma State quarterback Mike Gundy and Ohio State running back Raymont Harris were inducted into the Holiday Bowl Hall of Fame on Tuesday.

Also inducted was Les Land, the Holiday Bowl's first executive director.

Although Gundy was overshadowed by teammate Barry Sanders in Oklahoma State's 65-14 win over Wyoming in 1988, he completed 20 of 24 passes for an 83.3-percent completion percentage, a Holiday Bowl record. He threw for 315 yards and two touchdowns. Sanders rushed for 222 yards and a Holiday Bowl-record five touchdowns, all in the first three quarters.

Harris set Holiday Bowl records by rushing for 235 yards on 35 carries in Ohio State's 28-21 win over Brigham Young in 1993.

Land helped get the bowl off the ground for its inaugural game in 1978. He took a leave of absence from his business and worked that year without a salary.
