GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) The Oklahoma Sooners promise they'll not overlook Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl.

Boise is in the Western Athletic Conference and is just the second non-BCS school to be invited to a BCS bowl.

But the Broncos are 12-0 and the other non-BCS school to play in a B BCS bowl was Utah of the WAC and Utah routed Pittsburgh 35-7 in the Fiesta Bowl two seasons ago.

OU coach Bob Stoops says there will be no problem in getting the Sooners to focus on what he calls an excellent Boise State team.

And Stoops is expecting star running back Adrian Peterson back for the game. Peterson hasn't played since breaking a collarbone October 14th against Iowa State.
