The latest 2014 NCAA football live stream and TV game on the bowl schedule arrives on Friday, Dec. 3 as the Cotton Bowl 2014 edition takes place in Dallas, Texas. This year's game will feature the Big 12's No. 13 Oklahoma State Cowboys as they battle the No. 8 Missouri Tigers of the SEC. With the game taking place at AT&T Stadium it has the makings of a big college football game, with one of these two teams walking off the field with a major BCS Bowl victory. The latest of the televised and live stream NCAA football bowl games arrives courtesy of various FOX sources.
According to ESPN.com on Jan. 3, Friday's 2014 Cotton Bowl will feature two more NCAA teams who had championship aspirations during this past college football season, but ultimately fell short. Missouri was ranked as high as No. 5 and led Auburn 45-42 after three quarters earlier in December. A win there would very well have put the Tigers into BCS title game consideration, but they ultimately fell 59-42. The rest is history, as Auburn upset Alabama and is heading to the BCS National Championship game on Monday.
The Oklahoma State Cowboys, who finished the season 10-2, were looking towards the Big 12 conference title, but a loss to rivals Oklahoma, and then Baylor's 30-10 win over Texas, gave the Bears the Big 12 title. Baylor went on to play in the Fiesta Bowl, which they lost to No. 15 UCF, while Oklahoma defeated former-No.1 Alabama in Thursday night's Sugar Bowl. That leaves the Cowboys with a chance at a major bowl game win against a top notch opponent in Missouri inside AT&T Stadium. It's a return trip for Oklahoma State after their 2009 loss in the Cotton Bowl to Mississippi 21-7.
Oklahoma State senior Kyle Staley said with regards to tonight's game:
"We're very excited to play Missouri, an SEC team, in Dallas. We have a lot of Texas kids that probably dreamed of playing there, so it's going to be a fun, exciting time. Just move forward, you can't look behind you."
The Missouri Tigers will be making their first return to the Cotton Bowl since 2007, when they defeated Arkansas 38-7. Of note, the Tigers are a former member of the Big 12, and were also members of the Big Eight conference with Oklahoma State prior to 1996. Tonight will bring the former conference rivals back onto the field to see which team gets to close out their season with a final victory.
The Cowboys are currently favorites for tonight, by 2 1/2 points at various books. Missouri initally opened as the 3 1/2-point favorites, indicating some serious movement away from the Tigers and to the Cowboys. The over/under first opened at 62 1/2 and the current over/under varies by book, with some having it at 61 and others as high as 63 1/2 points. Weather is expected to be mostly fair, with a kickoff temperature around 46 degrees.
