STILLWATER, Okla. -- Oklahoma State says it will discipline a cheerleader who extended a foot as an Oklahoma player celebrated the game-ending touchdown in last week's Bedlam matchup.

Deputy athletic director Dave Martin says the university does not condone physical or verbal abuse toward players or fans. In a statement to The Oklahoman, Martin said the cheerleader will see "consequences for his poor judgment and actions."

The male cheerleader is shown on video extending his foot while Oklahoma's Eric Striker celebrated his touchdown that ended the rivalry game. Oklahoma beat Oklahoma State 33-24.

He didn't make contact, and Martin said the cheerleader explained he was just extending his foot in a mocking manner.
