CBS Sports reported Sunday that OSU and Florida State are in discussions to play a nonconference game in early 2014 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, according to a source.
Gundy is not involved in scheduling and said he was unaware of the talks. But he maintained his general philosophy that he prefers softer nonconference schedules.
“The very best chance for us to win a Big 12 championship is to not encourage what could be a 10th game of the year that could be very difficult,” he said. “It's just the percentages. But I don't do scheduling. I've not been involved in scheduling, so if that's going on, it's dealing with somebody else.”
K-STATE REMINDS GUNDY OF 2011 OSU TEAM
Gundy was asked following the game Saturday night if he believes K-State is a legitimate national title contender.
The OSU coach admitted he hasn't watched enough of Alabama, Oregon or Notre Dame to properly judge, but said he thought the Wildcats should be included in the group of four or five teams that remain in the hunt for the BCS championship game.
Gundy was able to compare K-State to a team he's quite familiar with, though.
“They're playing a lot like we did last year,” he said. “They're very opportunistic on defense. Their quarterback (Collin Klein) is smart and doesn't make a lot of mistakes, and they have some skill players, including him, that allow them to score some points. And they're very good in special teams.”
