ARLINGTON, TX--(Marketwired - January 03, 2014) - Missouri, the SEC East Division Champion, will face off with Oklahoma State for the 78th AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic on Friday, January 3, 2014.

AT&T Stadium was recently named America's Top Best 5 Newest Stadiums in the NFL by Thrillist. The AT&T Stadium is the fourth largest stadium in the NFL by seating capacity. Inside AT&T Stadium lays the most state of the art synthetic turf field manufactured by Hellas Construction.

Made from 100% polyethylene monofilaments, the high performance SoftTop removable system looks like a natural grass field and is designed to offer optimum traction, system stability, and player performance.
