OSU notebook: Cowboys prepared for top 5 ranking

But Gundy did not have any clear solution as to who will replace Jonathan Rush, who suffered a left knee injury, at the starting left guard spot.

“I don't have a clue,” Gundy said. “I don't think anybody does, including (offensive line coach Joe Wickline). We've got guys, but I don't know what he'll do. He'll shuffle (people) around, but there's no telling what he'll do.”

Nick Martinez slid over from tackle to guard, and Parker Graham filled in at tackle after Rush went down Saturday.

Gundy said both Hedgepeth and Rush will have MRIs on Monday to confirm their injuries.


OSU co-defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer was with the Cowboys for Saturday's win after laying his wife, Angela, to rest Thursday in Georgia.

And after attending all of Sunday's meetings with coaches and players, Gundy expects that Glenn Spencer will continue to work back into his typical day-to-day schedule.

“I would say that he's probably in a normal routine,” Gundy said. “He knows that if at any time, he needs to take some time, he can. But he's been here (Sunday) and been in the normal flow of activities.”

Angela Spencer, who had a history of heart problems, died Sept. 17. Glenn Spencer returned to Stillwater during the Cowboys' three-hour rain delay before their game against Tulsa and was not involved in preparation for the A&M game.


When the Cowboys arrived at the Stillwater airport around 9:30 p.m. Saturday following their victory in College Station, between 300 and 400 fans were there to greet them.

Gundy said the reception at the airport came as a bit of a shock.

“There were a lot of people there,” Gundy said. “I always forget about that on the plane — I don't really think ahead like that. But once we landed, I thought, ‘Well, I could see why they were there.' I was surprised there were that many people there.”
