House Divided: Couple Torn Between Home Schools As Oklahoma State Takes On Notre Dame
The Oklahoma State Cowboys are taking on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish for the first time in school history in the Fiesta Bowl this weekend but for one Phoenix couple, it's now a house divided.
Matt and Jennifer Bell say they've never had to worry about a rivalry between their two schools because they never played each other. But, now that's about to change.
Jennifer graduated from Oklahoma State while her husband Matt is all about the Fighting Irish. Jennifer says she typically loves cheering for Notre Dame but there's no chance that will happen this weekend.
She says she's confident the pokes have what it takes to win.
"You know it's time Matt always I know he's always considered Notre Dame the better team, this is our chance to prove him otherwise. This is our year," she said.
"We'll just see, both teams have great defenses and I'm excited to see what happens but she's not a good winner or loser so this should be interesting," her husband Matt says.
They both say they think it will be a close game and the winner will be who plays better defensively.
