DALLAS (AP) _ Two days after settling on a matchup of No. 16 Mississippi and No. 21 Oklahoma State, the Cotton Bowl is sold out.

``We knew that Oklahoma State and Ole Miss would bring huge crowds, but tickets went even faster that we could have expected,'' game chairman Fin Ewing III said Tuesday.

Oklahoma State was picked Sunday and accepted 22,500 tickets. Ole Miss, which accepted an invitation Wednesday, sold its allotment of 17,096 tickets.
