Big 12 disputes report of OSU apology

The Big 12 is disputing a newspaper report that its coordinator of officials "apologized profusely" to Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy following a blown call in Saturday's 41-36 loss to Texas.

"Reports that the Big 12 acknowledged a blown call and issued an apology to Oklahoma State are inaccurate," the Big 12 tweeted on Wednesday.

According to the report in The Oklahoman, Walt Anderson told Gundy that head linesman Brad Edwards signaled a touchdown too soon without a proper view of the ball on the play that put the Longhorns ahead. Texas running back Joe Bergeron fumbled, and the question was whether it happened before he crossed the goal line.
