The head of Big 12 football officials apologized to Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy for the botched call on a Texas touchdown on Saturday, a source told The Oklahoman.
Walt Anderson “apologized profusely” for the call. Anderson said the officials were too quick to call the go-ahead touchdown. The replay booth reviewed the call.
Texas running back Joe Bergeron scored the touchdown with less than two minutes to play in the game. Anderson said the ball was fumbled before he crossed the goal line.
The Big 12 said these reports, however, were inaccurate.
The touchdown gave the Longhorns the lead and made way for their eventual 41-36 win over OSU.
