Calculate Files Created Today

I need to figure out how to get all the files from a certian dir ./123/*sat files
and ./230/*sat files and several other directories which have these *sat files in them. I need to calculate how many were created today and how many yesterday from 2:00 pm on the 28th to 2pm on the 29th.

It's a solaris box 5.8 sun4us sparc FJSV,GPUZC-M
