4PM Update> See the tweet above. Hmmm. What's going on here?
Mike Gundy made it very clear that he was unhappy with the deciding touchdown called in their game against Texas last weekend.
Gundy flat out told reporters, "I think he fumbled." Come to find out, it looks like he was right.
The Big 12 came out today and formally apologized for the botched call.
According to the Oklahoman, the head of Big 12 officials called Gundy to "apologize profusely" for the touchdown that ended up deciding the game Saturday. Further review revealed that the Longhorns touchdown on 2nd and 2 was, in fact, fumbled before the ball crossed the goal line.
An Oklahoma State player ended up coming up with the ball in the end zone, but the touchdown was reviewed by the booth and later confirmed on the field.
Take a quick look at the play in question below.
