Missouri held off Oklahoma State 41-31 on Friday night in the Cotton Bowl at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Here's what some of the players and coaches had to say about the game:

*“It's a tough way to lose the last two games. It's really hard on our team. I was proud of our effort. We had our chances.” — OSU coach Mike Gundy

*“It hurts to lose, but this class, I've developed some relationships that I'll keep for the rest of my life. I couldn't be more proud to know these two guys (Clint Chelf and Shaun Lewis).” — Cowboys linebacker Caleb Lavey

*“Sweet. That's awesome. Make sure you document this so you have all your research and your background. We were prepared for both quarterbacks. I thought that was a joke.” — Gundy after being asked about Missouri quarterback Maty Mauk by a reporter from Sports Illustrated.

*“Instant replay. I mean, that's what's caused it, right? There was how many reviews? Four? Five? I'm going to guess that pushes it over the four-hour limit. There were a lot of forward passes: 40 for them and 57 for us.” — Gundy on the length of the game, which exceeded four hours.

*“As long as you win, I don't care how long they (go).” — Missouri coach Gary Pinkel on the length of the game

*“I just don't know if there's a better facility out there that puts on a show and is accommodating to the game. It's very impressive. I think whoever made the decision made a good decision to give these people the opportunity to have that national championship game.” — Gundy on the Cotton Bowl hosting next season's national championship game that is part of the inaugural four-team playoff.
