OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy didn't mince any words when talking about how overmatched his interior linemen were in the latest installment of the Bedlam rivalry.

Gundy described how the Cowboys were mashed, pummeled and had the ball ran down their throat by Oklahoma in a 49-17 loss.

Now he'll have a chance to do something about it.

With the completion of the regular season, Gundy and his staff can turn their focus toward recruiting more physical linemen and spend their bowl practices beefing up the young players who are already on campus.

Oklahoma ran the ball on 28 of its 35 first-half snaps on its way to 307 rushing yards.

The Cowboys' offensive line hit its low point when it couldn't clear enough space to allow for a conversion from first-and-goal at the 1-yard line in the second quarter.
