The Oklahoma State Cowboys and Missouri Tigers were eying BCS Bowl title game appearances before each lost their final regular season college football game to land in the 2014 AT&T Cotton Bowl instead. It is OSU taking on MU in the 2014 Cotton Bowl when we watch Cotton Bowl online free live streaming on Fox.
Missouri (11-2) had its sights set on the BCS championship headed into their season finale in the SEC championship game against Auburn. With a ranking of five and momentum on their side, the Tigers instead found themselves swapping touchdowns with Auburn until the latter pulled away late in the game for a 59-42 win. The loss sent the Tigers to the Cotton Bowl and one game short of playing for the big prize.
The Tigers have played the Cowboys a total of 51 times dating all the way back to 1915 and lead the series overall by a 28-23 margin. The majority of those games came when the schools were in the same Big Eight Conference until 1996 when both teams were moved to the Big 12 Conference, and since the move the Tigers have won five of nine meetings, though the Cowboys have won the last three.
Potent offensives have served both Oklahoma State and Missouri throughout the course of the 2013 season. The Cowboys scored 39.8 points per game on average to rank them 14th in the FBS, while the Tigers were almost as good at 39 points per game, good enough for one spot back at 15th. Watch Cotton Bowl Missouri vs Oklahoma State online streaming free live on Fox tonight to see if these teams end up in a scoring shoot out.
While the scoring averages between the two Cotton Bowl teams are similar, there’s a little more disparity when taking a look at the total yards generated by the offenses in games. The Cowboys rank 41st at 440.5 yards per game, while the Tigers are over 50 yards better at 492.9 yards per game, good enough for 16th.
Missouri’s offense has clicked with a potent combination at quarterback and running back. Senior quarterback James Franklin has 19 touchdown passes and 2,255 yards on the season, and that comes after missing four games earlier due to injury. Running back James Franklin, a senior playing in his final collegiate football game, has 13 touchdowns and 1,074 yards gained on the ground.
Tonight’s 2014 Cotton Bowl between the Oklahoma State Cowboys and Missouri Tigers, the first of two nationally televised Bowl games tonight, will kick-off at a start time of 7:30pm EST / 4:30pm PST. Fox will be carrying the football game over the air so find what Fox’s channel number is in your local listings to watch Cotton Bowl in HD on your big TV.
Fox is not offering an easy way to watch Cowboys vs Tigers in the 2014 Cotton Bowl online free streaming live on a computer, phone, or other Internet device. There will be coverage available here at the official AT&T website for the 2014 Cotton Bowl, though it is expected to be limited and not a clean live streaming Cotton Bowl. I like Oklahoma State to win this game for the simple fact that they are the Cowboys and the game is being played in the NFL stadium that is home to the Dallas Cowboys.
