SEC runner-up Missouri is headed to the Cotton Bowl, where the ninth-ranked Tigers will play No. 13 Oklahoma State.
The matchup for the Jan. 3 game was announced Sunday night.
Missouri (11-2) is coming off a 59-42 loss to Auburn in the SEC championship game in only its second season in that league.
Oklahoma State (10-2) was on track for a Big 12 title and a spot in the Bowl Championship Series before a 33-24 loss to Oklahoma on Saturday.
SEC teams have won the last five Cotton Bowls, and nine of the last 10, over Big 12 teams. The lone exception was the 2008 game when Missouri, then in the Big 12, beat Arkansas 38-7.
Oklahoma State is in its 11th bowl in 12 years, a span than includes Cotton Bowl losses to Mississippi in 2004 and 2010.
