The Missouri Tigers are heading to Dallas to play in the Cotton Bowl against their former Big 12 rivals, the Oklahoma State Cowboys. This is one of the big matchup in the bowl season where the teams are a combined 21-4 on the season. Here is our preview of the 78th Cotton Bowl.

Who to watch for the Cowboys

Justin Gilbert, Cornerback.

For fans of the Rams and the Tigers, you might want to watch out for Justin Gilbert. The senior from outside of Houston, Texas has 6 interceptions on the year and 6 pass deflections. He will likely be lined up against Dorial Green-Beckham (DGB) all night at AT&T Stadium. He also is a weapon in the kick return game as well. He will make his presence felt as he prepares to go to the NFL next year.
