Live Thread: Missouri Tigers vs Oklahoma State in the Cotton Bowl (This. Is. Happening.)

I know what you are all thinking: If only there was a website doing a live blog of the Missouri Tigers vs. Oklahoma State Cowboys Cotton Bowl game so that I may follow along and comment when compelled to do so. Well, holy crap are you in luck! We, KC Kingdom, are doing such a thing tonight! LIVE!

Both teams in this game are coming off gut-wrenching losses. Mizzou lost in the SEC title game in which they gave up 545 rushing yards to Auburn. Oklahoma State lost a defacto Big 12 championship game with a brutal last second loss to Oklahoma. Each will be looking to rebound and gain back some of the promise the season once held.

Missouri is going to have another tough test trying to stop the Cowboys ground game. While they are no Auburn, OSU is averaging 172 yards per game on the ground, and has used that to bolster a passing game that is ranked 29th in the nation. The question for the Cowboys is how consistent will their quarterback play be? Clint Chelf and J.W. Walsh split duties as the starting quarterbacks this year, but neither had resounding success. What kind of play OSU gets from their quarterback will dictate whether this game is close or not.

This game has a lot of potential to get out of hand quickly if OSU isn’t ready out of the gates. Missouri has one of the most potent offenses in the country, and can rack up points very quickly.

So let’s get this thing started. And in the words of Mr. O’Reilly: We’ll do it live!
