The Cotton Is The Final Rodeo For Cowboy Seniors

Posted: Updated:

Mike Gundy and the Oklahoma State Cowboys will be gunning for their fourth straight bowl victory when they face Missouri in the Cotton Bowl.

This has been a very special senior class.  They've averaged 10-wins over the last four years and a victory over the Tigers gives them 41.  It would be the most by any Cowboys senior class. 

For a lot of the seniors it's starting to sink in that this is their final rodeo.

"It's starting to.  I've been packing up my house." OSU Senior Receiver Charlie Moore said, "The crazy thing is when I leave Monday from these bowl practices, I'm leaving Stillwater.  So after this bowl game I live about an hour and a-half away from Dallas so I'm going home.  It's starting to get pretty real, but I'm just going to soak it in and just let the emotions roll and have fun and enjoy all the time with these guys."

#13 Oklahoma State renews their old Big 12 rivalry with #8 Missouri on Friday, January the 3rd in the Cotton Bowl at AT&T Stadium.  Kick off is set for 7:00pm.
