Big 12 Addresses OSU Videoboard Shenanigans

Jason Scott

On Saturday, Oklahoma State used a bit of off-field gamesmanship to try to distract Texas kicker Cameron Dicker during a field goal attempt.

During a 40-yard field goal attempt, the Cowboys videoboard showed vertical yellow lines, appearing to mimic the goal posts. Dicker made the kick, but the chicanery did not go unnoticed. On Tuesday, Longhorns coach Tom Herman said that the Big 12 Conference “addressed it” with him, according to Sports Illustrated.

"I addressed it with commissioner [Bob] Bowlsby and Ed Stewart, the associate commissioner for football, and they assured me that that is not permissible by Big 12 standards and it has been addressed,” Herman said during a news conference.

Texas ultimately defeated Oklahoma State 41-34 in overtime.
