No. 9 Missouri (11-2) vs. No. 13 Oklahoma State (10-2)
■ Where: Arlington, Texas
■ Time: 8 p.m. (Fox)
■ Series: Missouri leads 28-23.
■ What’s at stake: The former Big 12 and Big Eight Conference rivals from bordering states meet in a bowl for the first time. Missouri, wrapping up its second SEC season after leaving the Big 12, will try to match a school record with its 12th victory. Oklahoma State is trying to get 11 wins for the third time in four seasons, after never reaching 11 before that.
■ Key matchup: Missouri's big, physical receivers against the Oklahoma State secondary. Mizzou receivers Dorial Green-Beckham (55 catches, 830 yards, 12 TDs) and L'Damian Washington (47-853-10) are both 6-foot-4, an inch shorter than Marcus Lucas (55-646-2). All-Big 12 cornerback Justin Gilbert led the league with six interceptions and is in the Cowboys secondary with safety Daytawion Lowe, a second-team All-Big 12 selection.
