Three Longhorns have already announced that they will not play in the Bowl game.

The University of Texas will face the Missouri Tigers Dec. 27 at NRG Stadium. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m.at NRG Stadium on ESPN.


A bowl bid looked improbable for the Tigers after starting the season 1-5, but the Tigers closed by winning their final six games - averaging 51.3 points per game in those wins. The Longhorns are appearing in their first bowl game since 2014 when they lost the Texas Bowl to the Arkansas Razorbacks 31-7.

"On behalf of the University of Missouri, Chancellor (Alex) Cartwright, Coach Odom and our student-athletes, we are honored to accept an invitation to participate in the 2017 Texas Bowl", Mizzou athletics director Jim Sterk said. The last time Texas played Missouri was 2011 before, the season before they moved to the SEC. Quarterbacks Shane Buechele and Sam Ehlinger have been in and out of Herman's lineup and have combined for 3,153 passing yards and 16 touchdowns. Offensive tackle Connor Williams ans safety DeShon Elliott will skip the Bowl as they prepare for the National Football League draft and running back/tight end Chris Warren III announced that he is transferring. In 1946, the Longhorns took the win over the Tigers 40-27 at the Cotton Bowl.
