Mike Gundy thinks that Texas running back Joe Bergeron's controversial game-winning touchdown on Saturday was actually a fumble, and according to a report from The Oklahoman, so does Walt Anderson, the Big 12's head of officiating.
Anderson reportedly "apologized profusely" for the call in a phone call with Gundy. Upon further video review, it appeared that Bergeron had lost the ball while attempting to dive for the end-zone, but the ruling on the field was of a TD and there was no way to determine who wound up with the ball after it was called dead.
As a result, the Longhorns moved ahead of the Cowboys, 41-36, after the extra-point for the final margin of victory in a back-and-forth thriller on Saturday night.
Anderson's call, however, is small comfort for an Oklahoma State team that is now 2-2 in 2012, with their chances of defending the program's first ever Big 12 championship slipping further away.
Texas, meanwhile, heads into a 4-0 showdown with West Virginia, as Mack Brown's team will try to use this bit of good fortune to recover from a disappointing 13-12 record over the last two seasons.
