TEMPE, Ariz. — Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said play-calling will be a group effort but he will have the final vote when the Cowboys play Indiana on Monday night in the Insight Bowl.

"We'll have a call that comes from me and then all the adjustments will be made among the group,” Gundy said. "That's one advantage with what we do. I wouldn't say anybody is the official guy. Most of it will be done as a group.”

Play-calling became an issue after offensive coordinator Larry Fedora was named head coach at Southern Mississippi earlier this month.

"Sometimes the quarterback makes (the final decision),” Gundy said. "It depends on how they line up. I'd say 60 percent of the time we stay with the call. The original call will come from me, but nothing's really changed.”
