The University of Missouri may not be going to a postseason bowl game for the first time since 2004, but there are plenty of intriguing football bowl games on the schedule this year.
At 7 p.m. on Friday, January 4, the AT&T Cotton Bowl will feature a local St. Louis tie as Oklahoma takes on Texas A&M. Durron Neal, a De Smet Jesuit standout, has seen limited action in his freshman season for the Sooners as a wide receiver. In an interesting return to a previous Big 12 matchup, the Oklahoma Sooners, who won a share of the Big 12 championship, will face the Texas A&M Aggies, who recently moved from the Big 12 conference to the SEC. The game will be aired on FOX on Friday night.
A few local places are sure to have the game on tonight. Here are some suggestions to get you started:
- Blackfinn American Grille
- Buffalo Wild Wings (Brentwood)
- Lester's (Ladue)
Do you have a favorite place to watch the game in Clayton or Richmond Heights? If so, please let us know in the comments.
