Big 12 denies apologizing to Oklahoma State for fumble call

The Big 12 Conference did not apologize to Oklahoma State University after all, according to the league's official Twitter account. That contradicts a report from the Oklahoman, which stated that the conference acknowledged that Texas's Joe Bergeron's game-winning touchdown was actually a fumble.

Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy told reporters on Sunday night that he reviewed the tape, and said "I think he fumbled." Gundy appears to be right, but officials didn't overturn the call because it was unclear who recovered the loose ball, as the play was blown dead while players were still scrambling.

Will the Big 12 ultimately have to end up apologizing for refuting their supposed apology? That remains to be seen. In the meantime, the Cowboys will be stuck dwelling during a bye week, while the Longhorns continue to prepare for their big game this weekend against high-powered West Virginia.
