Mizzou tops OK State in Cotton Bowl

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Henry Josey ran for 92 yards and three touchdowns, the last a 16-yarder with 3:08 left, and No. 9 Missouri beat No. 13 Oklahoma State 41-31 in the Cotton Bowl on Friday night.

The former Big 12 and Big Eight rivals traded points on six consecutive possessions in the fourth quarter, until Oklahoma State quarterback Clint Chelf was sacked and fumbled with a minute left. Defensive lineman Shane Ray picked up the ball and rumbled 76 yards down the sideline in front of the stunned Cowboys bench to score.

SEC East champion Missouri (12-2) matched its school record for victories, giving the SEC its 10th win in the last 11 Cotton Bowls - all against the Big 12.

Josey's go-ahead TD came a play after James Franklin's 27-yard pass to Dorial Green-Beckham on third-and-9. Franklin, the Missouri quarterback plagued by injuries the last two seasons, had two fumbles earlier in the second half when Oklahoma State (10-3) overcame a 10-point deficit to tie it in just over 3 1/2 minutes.

Ray had been dragged into the end zone by Desmond Roland when the Oklahoma State running back bulled through the line for a 2-yard TD run with 5 minutes left to give the Cowboys their only lead of the night. Ray hit Roland immediately at the line, but couldn't keep him from scoring.

Franklin was only 15 of 40 passing for 174 yards with an interception in the first half.

Chelf threw for 381 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions, completing 33 of 57 passes. He also ran 10 times for 48 yards, including a 23-yard run on third-and-10 only a few plays before All-SEC defensive end Michael Sam sacked Chelf and knocked the ball loose.

That gave Sam 11 1/2 sacks, the most in the SEC and matching a school record.
