For the third time in five seasons, Oklahoma State will face an old foe in a bowl game.

The Cowboys will take on Missouri in the 60th AutoZone Liberty Bowl in Memphis at 2:45 on Dec. 31. The No. 23 Tigers finished with an 8-4 record this season while going 4-4 in the SEC East.

Missouri captured a 41-31 victory against OSU in the 2014 Cotton Bowl in Arlington, Texas. Missouri leads the all-time series, 29-23.

The last time OSU played a bowl game in Memphis, Tennessee, was in 1949, a 20-0 loss to William & Mary. OSU went 6-6 this season, finishing ninth in the Big 12 Conference, though it went 3-1 against ranked opponents.
