    Missouri scored the last 14 points of the game to beat Oklahoma State 41-31 in the Cotton Bowl on Friday.

    The Tigers trailed 31-27 with 5:04 to go, but rallied with a Henry Josey touchdown run and a Shane Ray fumble return to seal the deal.

    Henry Josey ran for three touchdowns in the game, and the Mizzou defense took advantage of three Oklahoma State turnovers to win the contest between former conference rivals.

    Oklahoma State quarterback Clint Chelf had 342 yards passing and two touchdowns in the game.
