ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Henry Josey ran for 92 yards and three touchdowns, the last a 16-yarder with 3:08 left, and No. 9 Missouri beat No. 13 Oklahoma State 41-31 in the Cotton Bowl on Friday night.
The former Big 12 and Big Eight rivals traded points on six consecutive possessions in the fourth quarter, until Oklahoma State quarterback Clint Chelf was sacked and fumbled with a minute left. Defensive lineman Shane Ray picked up the ball and rumbled 76 yards down the sideline in front of the stunned Cowboys bench to score.
SEC East champion Missouri (12-2) matched its school record for victories, giving the SEC its 10th win in the last 11 Cotton Bowls -- all against the Big 12.
Josey's go-ahead TD came a play after James Franklin's 27-yard pass to Dorial Green-Beckham on third-and-9. Franklin, the Missouri quarterback plagued by injuries the last two seasons, had two fumbles earlier in the second half when Oklahoma State (10-3) overcame a 10-point deficit to tie it in just over 3½ minutes.
Ray had been dragged into the end zone by Desmond Roland when the Oklahoma State running back bulled through the line for a 2-yard TD run with 5 minutes left to give the Cowboys their only lead of the night. Ray hit Roland immediately at the line, but couldn't keep him from scoring.
Chelf threw for 381 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions, completing 33 of 57 passes. He also ran 10 times for 48 yards, including a 23-yard run on third-and-10 only a few plays before All-SEC defensive end Michael Sam sacked Chelf and knocked the ball loose.
That gave Sam 11½ sacks, the most in the SEC and matching a school record.
NO. 12 CLEMSON 40, NO. 7 OHIO STATE 35
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) -- Tajh Boyd threw for 378 yards and five touchdowns, Sammy Watkins had a record-setting night with 16 catches for 227 yards, and Clemson rallied to beat Ohio State in the Orange Bowl.
Boyd's 5-yard pass to Stanton Seckinger with 6:16 left put the Tigers (11-2) ahead to stay. Watkins caught two touchdown passes, plus became Clemson's career receptions leader and set an Orange Bowl record for yardage.
Martavis Bryant caught two more TD passes for the Tigers to help the Tigers to their first Orange Bowl victory in 32 years.
Braxton Miller threw for 234 yards and Carlos Hyde ran for 113 more for Ohio State (12-2), which wasted a nine-point second-half lead. Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer lost for the first time in five career trips to the Bowl Championship Series.
