Mike Gundy won’t play non-Power 5 schools without Big 12 refs again

Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy is still fuming from the controversial call that cost his team the game againts Central Michigan. Following the loss, Gundy has come out and said he is against playing non-Power 5 schools at home without Big 12 officials moving forward.

“In a contract with a Power 5 school, you’re going to exchange officials on your one-to-one games. Otherwise, I would not go into a game without Big 12 officials,” Gundy said, via Jake Trotter of ESPN.com.

“We’re playing a school that does not want to use our officials, you move on and find another school.”

Gundy’s remarks came after the wild ending with the Chippewas.

Officials called an intentional grounding penalty against Central Michigan in the final seconds, before incorrectly awardeing the team one final, untimed down. The Chippewas used that play to score a wild hail mary to win the game.

Following the game, the MAC officiating crew on duty and the two Big 12 replay officials were suspended for incorrectly awarding Central Michigan with the extra play.

Let’s hope the Cowboys can put the unfortunate outcome behind them, because they face a tough challenge in Week 3 when the ACC’s Pittsburgh Panthers roll into town on Saturday afternoon.
