DALLAS (AP) _ Last New Year's Day, Missouri players were on
their couches gorging on the action and recovering from a
last-second Sun Bowl loss a few days earlier.
The seventh-ranked Tigers are part of the extravaganza this
year, with Tuesday's leadoff-man matchup against number-25 Arkansas
the school's first New Year's Day appearance in 38 years.
Missouri's last major bowl appearance was the Orange in 1970, a
10-3 loss to Penn State to wrap up a 9-2 season, and though it's
the fourth postseason trip in five years for the Tigers it's only
the sixth since 1983. They've played in the Cotton Bowl only once,
At 11-2, Missouri is seeking its first-ever 12-win season. The
Razorbacks are 8-4.
