This will be Oklahoma State’s first appearance in the Liberty Bowl, but the second time they’ve played in Memphis in the postseason. Although, it’s been awhile. Oklahoma A&M lost to No. 17 William & Mary in the 1949 Delta Bowl.

The Cowboys, who finished the regular season 6-6 (3-6), will look to avoid their first losing season under Mike Gundy since 2005 when they take on former Big 8 and Big 12 foe Missouri. The Tigers, ranked No. 23 in the final CFP poll, went 8-4 in the regular season, including 4-4 in SEC play.

This will be the 53rd meeting in the series, one Missouri leads 29-23. The Tigers won the last time the two teams faced off, knocking off the Cowboys 41-31 in the 2014 Cotton Bowl.

This will be Oklahoma State’s 13-straight bowl appearance, a record for the Cowboys and the ninth longest active bowl streak in the nation.
