Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin on his team's handling of the speculation surrounding his future: "We'll deal with it the way we've dealt with everything this year. We'll continue to do business as usual....Dealing with adversity, that's what life is about. For our players, it's another learning experience and how they respond and how they react is one thing. How you perform is another. That is part of the learning experience that you try to teach young adults and that's how we've handled it."

The Big 12 also issued a public reprimand for Kansas players Joe Dineen, Dorance Armstrong Jr., Jeremiah Booker, and Daniel Wise for refusing to shake hands with Mayfield. Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby, in a statement: “The refusal of these student-athletes to shake an opponent’s hand during the pre-game ceremony is contrary to tradition and inconsistent with common courtesy. The pre-game handshake among team captains is symbolic of good sportsmanship. This breach of protocol is not in keeping with the standards of the Big 12 Conference. I am grateful for the work of the Kansas administration and coaches to resolve this matter.”

The Big 12 has issued a public reprimand of Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield. Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby, in a statement: “Mr. Mayfield’s actions are unacceptable and should not be tolerated. I am grateful for the efficient management of this matter by the coaches and administration of the University of Oklahoma. Baker Mayfield is a truly outstanding competitor and I generally appreciate his style of play and the manner in which he competes. However, the behavior he exhibited on the sideline during the Oklahoma-Kansas game was inappropriate and contrary to our sportsmanship policies.”
