Face-Off Tonight Between Missouri and Oklahoma State Will Commence in the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic

Hellas' SoftTop(TM) Removable Field for NCAA Is in Place at AT&T Stadium

ARLINGTON, TX--(Marketwired - January 03, 2014) - Missouri, the SEC East Division Champion, will face off with Oklahoma State for the 78th AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic on Friday, January 3, 2014. Missouri will be making its third appearance, and OSU is making its fourth trip to the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic. AT&T Stadium was recently named America's Top Best 5 Newest Stadiums in the NFL by Thrillist. The AT&T Stadium is the fourth largest stadium in the NFL by seating capacity. Inside AT&T Stadium lays the most state of the art synthetic turf field manufactured by Hellas Construction. The SoftTop™ removable system field can be converted within 24 hours or less if required, rolled-up and stored inside the stadium to accommodate various events, this time converted from an NFL field to NCAA football field. Made from 100% polyethylene monofilaments, the high performance SoftTop removable system looks like a natural grass field and is designed to offer optimum traction, system stability, and player performance. 

"We are thrilled to have two of the top-ranked teams in the country with Oklahoma State and Missouri, and needless to say, Coach Gundy and Coach Pinkel have put together two great teams that deserved to be honored at the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic," Tommy Bain, Chairman of the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic said. "I can guarantee you, with OSU and Mizzou's strong fan base, it's going to be a great atmosphere at AT&T Stadium come January 3rd."
