"But that doesn't go very far," he said. "By the middle of the week we'll get some sort of explanation on what happened there and how the touchdown was called. The Big 12 has always been good about that."
Gundy said he told the officials after the play that he thought Bergeron fumbled and asked how they'd ruled it a touchdown before the review.
"I just wanted to know now it was called a touchdown based on the time it was called a touchdown when the official came running in from the side and raised his arms in the air," Gundy said. "I think at that time we were all convinced the ball wasn't in (Bergeron's) hands when that happened, so at what point did somebody confirm it was a touchdown on the field?"

THE COWBOYS had 301 of their 576 yards of offense come from redshirt freshman J.W. Walsh's passing. He started in place of true freshman Wes Lundt, who was injured in the previous game, a Sept. 15 win against Louisiana-Lafayette.
"We looked at the video and tried to figure out after 37 years of this stuff if he'd play or not," Brown said. "After watching the video and looking at the injury, we did not think he'd play."
Walsh completed 18 of his 27 pass attempts and had two touchdowns and one interception and added 57 yards rushing.
"That's what's worse," Brown said. "We thought he'd play and we still didn't stop him."
Oklahoma State (2-2, 0-1) was off the previous week and is off again this week. Lundt could be back for the Oct. 13 game at Kansas. Gundy said if Walsh continues to progress and impress coaches, the Cowboys might be able to find ways to use him in games.

THOUGH IT could be driven more by necessity than luxury, Iowa State may be thinking about quarterbacks, too. Steele Jantz, the senior who was named the starter in the preseason over sophomore Jared Barnett, was 10-for-20 for 73 yards, three interceptions and one touchdown in the home loss to Texas Tech.
Jantz has completed 85-of-127 passes for 804 yards and has seven touchdowns and interceptions. The Cyclones (3-1, 0-1) had just 189 yards of offense in the 24-13 loss.
"I am concerned," said Coach Paul Rhoads, whose team took a 7-0 lead on an interception return in the first quarter. "We scored six points. We had under 200 yards. You can scan and look at a number of statistical categories and be concerned and be embarrassed."
The defensive touchdown belonged to all-conference linebacker A.J. Klein. His 87-yard score was his school-record fourth defensive touchdown and tied the FBS record for interception return scores by a linebacker.
