COLUMBIA — The 2013 Missouri football team wanted to be different from the 2007 Missouri team regarded as Gary Pinkel's best team. 

Instead, the 2013 Tigers won an identical 11 games in the regular season. Just like in 2007, Missouri also lost in its conference championship. And now, the team will be heading to the same bowl it did in 2007, too. Missouri announced on Sunday night that it has accepted an invitation to play in the AT&T Cotton Bowl against Oklahoma State. 

After losing to Auburn in the Southeastern Conference Championship Game, Missouri was all but eliminated from the BCS discussion. Auburn will play for the BCS Championship against Florida State, while Alabama will take the SEC's second spot in the BCS and play against Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl. 

Missouri and Oklahoma State will play on Jan. 3 at 7 p.m. at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Missouri has been allotted 12,500 tickets that will go on sale to the public Monday at noon.
