Oklahoma State will face Missouri in the Cotton Bowl

The #13 Cowboys will face the 8th ranked Missouri Tigers in the 2014 AT&T Cotton Bowl

Sunday night the OSU players and coaches learned they would be headed back to Dallas for a bowl destination, this time to take on the 8th ranked Missouri Tigers in the AT&T Cotton Bowl on January 3rd.

Oklahoma State suffered a crushing last minute loss to the Sooners, costing them a second Big 12 Championship in three years and a BCS bowl. However, the consolation prize appears to be arguably the best bowl match-up of the Big 12, and a chance for OSU to end the SEC's five game winning streak in the Cotton Bowl.

Missouri is coming off of a defeat of their own, as the Tigers fell to Auburn 59-42 in the SEC Championship finishing the season 11-2. Coach Pinkel has done a phenomenal job this season after the Tigers finished 2-6 in conference play a year ago, and 5-7 overall. This season, Mizzou won the SEC East and finished 7-1 in conference play, losing only to South Carolina 27-24 in double overtime.

Oklahoma State is returning to the Cotton bowl for the first time since 2010. Ironically, Missouri was the last Big 12 team to win the Cotton Bowl back in 2008 in a 38-7 victory over Arkansas.
