Finishing the season in a bowl game has become a regular occurrence for Oklahoma State players and coaches, with the Cowboys’ Cotton Bowl matchup against Missouri marking their eighth consecutive bowl appearance.

But for first-year offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich, this is a brand new experience.
