Feels good to see a newbie take up the banner and beat a good team down with it. M-I-Z! Very proud ATM.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Missouri players sat and watched the Allstate Sugar Bowl with the bewildered feeling the rest of the nation was experiencing. Oklahoma was imposing its will on SEC power Alabama in the heart of SEC country, going from underdog to the talk of the nation on Thursday night.

“It was crazy, it came down to what team wanted it most,” Missouri receiver Dorial Green-Beckham said of the Sooners' 45-31 win. “You looked at Oklahoma and they wanted to win the game, they wanted to be Sugar Bowl champs, they went out and took what was theirs.”

Thus, Missouri players woke up on Friday morning with the knowledge that the weight of an entire conference was on their shoulders. Missouri needed to grab immediate revenge with a victory over Oklahoma State in the AT&T Cotton Bowl if it wanted to defend its conference’s reputation.

The SEC took a punch from the Big 12 in the Sugar Bowl, but the Tigers punched back Friday night with a 41-31 win over Big 12 foe Oklahoma State at AT&T Stadium.

Ronald Martinez/Getty ImagesMissouri might be new to the SEC, but the Tigers understood the importance of beating Oklahoma State and keeping the conference's rep.

“I did feel a tad bit of pressure, because I know we represent the SEC,” senior receiver L'Damian Washington said. “I think [OSU cornerback] Justin Gilbert made a statement earlier this week that the Big 12 was better than the SEC and I think we had to go out and prove the SEC is a force to be reckoned with.”

The Tigers used a combination of a relentless pass-rushing defensive line, strong running game and timely plays to earn their school record-tying 12th victory of the season, equaling the win total of the 2007 team.

Led by Cotton Bowl offensive MVPHenry Josey, Missouri rushed for 256 yards and averaged 5.4 yards per carry against a Cowboys’ defense that allowed 132.9 rushing yards and 3.46 per carry during the regular season. OSU quarterback Clint Chelf will have nightmares featuring Tigers pass-rushing duo Michael Sam and Kony Ealy. Missouri got to Chelf for three sacks, but the Cowboys quarterback was constantly flushed out of the pocket and forced to make plays on the move thanks to the Tigers defensive line, which cemented the win when Sam forced a Chelf fumble that was returned 73 yards for a touchdown by Shane Ray to halt OSU’s hopes of a game-winning touchdown in the final minutes.

“First-team All-American makes an All-American play,” Mizzou coach Gary Pinkel said.

SEC teams rejoiced as the conference escaped back-to-back losses to Big 12 opponents.

“We believe we’re the best conference,” said Andrew Wilson, who finished with a game-high 15 tackles. “And if you want to be the best conference you have to prove it, that’s why everyone is rooting for each other in these bowl games for everyone to go out and do what they can do.”

Make no mistake, the Tigers wanted the win for themselves, but they also wanted it for their conference.

“That’s something real big, representing the SEC,” Josey said. “The SEC is such a powerful conference, that’s the conference everybody looks to, that’s where the attention is. Coming into this game, that was in the back of our mind, that is always in the back of our mind that we had to hold up the rep for the SEC.”

Now, with its job done, Missouri passes the mantle to Auburn, which has the opportunity to win the eighth consecutive BCS title for the SEC when it takes on Florida State in the BCS National Championship on Monday night.

“Right now it’s up to Auburn to bring it home,” Ealy said. “We want to keep it in the SEC, that’s the most important thing as far as this conference goes.”

Congrats on the win

LEGENDARY

Don't think I've ever seen a team talk so much about the conference after a win, but I like it.

The Tigers have come a long way since talking shit about "old man football"

The SEC culture is very loyal and traditional, there is a lot of pride....it's something that is very hard to explain to other people.  I have no problem rooting for any SEC team in an OOC game, especially in football.

Two nights ago I was rooting hard for Bama.  Last night I was a Mizzou Tiger.

Two more to go....

Go 'Dores!

Go Tigers!

Man it does feel good being in the SEC (FINALLY)!

Started college in the MAC - Bowling Green State University (No fun or respect as a fan...too many OSU and Michigan gear on campus at BGSU, had to transfer)
Transferred/Graduated to MWC -  Colorado State University (Once again no fun no respect as a fan but the scenery was unbelievable there in Colorado)
Master's - Texas A&M University (Friendliest campus, friendliest fellow students...not to mention...THE AWESOME STATE OF TEXAS!)

This is what I felt like entering this forum because I knew it would be sort of rough

It looks like no body else watched the game. I think the boring opening 45 minutes made people tune out. Only averaged 7.2 million viewers.

The Cotton Bowl had the advantage of not being on cable, but the Orange Bowl had Braxton Miller, Taj Boyd, Sammy Watkins, Carlos Hyde, etc....and was a constant back and forth game that wast officiated by potatoes.

I flipped back and forth between the two.

The Orange Bowl also had the advantage of the ESPN advertising. Anyone who turned it on ESPN anytime before the games saw advertising for the Orange Bowl. ESPN never once mentioned the Cotton Bowl.
