Lauren Rew of FM 107.7 The Franchise in Oklahoma City reports that Auburn has interviewed Oklahoma State OC Mike Yurcich for their open position.

Yurcich -- or whomever Auburn ends up hiring -- will take over for Tigers OC Rhett Lashlee, who jumped ship for UConn earlier this offseason. Yurcich was a 2016 nominee for the Broyles Award (handed out annually to the nation's top assistant coach) and helped forge an offense which ranked 14th in the country in total offense this past season. He has been with the Cowboys since 2013. One name that has already reportedly been nixed from the running at Auburn -- that of former Baylor HC Art Briles.

Oklahoma State OT Victor Salako accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

Salako transferred to Oklahoma State from UAB after the Blazers shut down their football program. He started at tackle immediately and helped OSU's offensive line improve steadily over his two years in Stillwater, to the point that the Pokes were once again effective running the ball in 2016. Salako was named second-team All-Big 12 by league coaches after this past season. The 6-foot-6, 335-pounder has an NFL frame but will need to show scouts at the Shrine Game that he can stick outside at right tackle in order to improve his Draft standing.

Minnesota sophomore C Tyler Moore transferred to Oklahoma State.

Moore started 20 straight games at center for the Gophers before a back injury kept him out of the Holiday Bowl win against Washington State last month. Moore must sit out the 2017 season due to NCAA transfer rules. Starting in 2018, he’ll have two seasons of eligibility remaining.

Oklahoma State junior WR James Washington caught nine passes for 171 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 38-8 win over Colorado in the Valero Alamo Bowl.

This one was all Cowboys. They started somewhat slow and held a mere 3-0 lead at the end of one quarter, but sputtered to life in the second quarter with a pair of touchdowns. After a 10-yard scoring run by Chris Carson, QB Mason Rudolph hit Washington from five yards out with 7:00 remaining in the first half to give Oklahoma State a 17-0 lead. Colorado never mounted a serious charge in what turned into one of the more impressive overall bowl performances of the season. The 6-foot, 205-pound Washington has already announced that he will be returning to Oklahoma State for his final season of collegiate eligibility in 2017. He finished the 2016 campaign having caught 71 passes for 1,380 yards and 10 touchdowns. We wouldn't be shocked if Washington earned a little dark-horse Heisman love next season.

Oklahoma State redshirt junior DT Vincent Taylor will forego his final season of collegiate eligibility to enter the 2017 NFL Draft.

Taylor was part of Thursday's blowout win over Colorado in the Alamo Bowl. Now, off into the collegiate sunset. The 6-foot-3, 310-pounder had an age imperative of sorts, here, as he will turn 23 in January. He earned All-Big 12 honors this past season on the strength of 51 tackles (13.0 for loss), 7.5 sacks and two forced fumbles. CBS Sports tabs Taylor as the No. 9 DT prospect in the prospective draft pool. He should land solidly as a Day 2 pick, though it will be interesting to see if his age impacts his stock.

Oklahoma State junior WR James Washington will return for his final season of collegiate eligibility in 2017.

Washington and QB Mason Rudolph jointly announced their decisions to return via a Twitter post. For his part, Washington is working on a 62-1209-9 line this season. He and Rudolph will tango with Colorado in the Alamo Bowl on Thursday to finish out the current campaign.

Oklahoma State junior QB Mason Rudolph will return for his final season of collegiate eligibility in 2017.

Rudolph won't be alone, as No. 1 WR target James Washington has also decided to reject the NFL in favor of a return to Stillwater in 2017. This past season, the 6-foot-5, 235-pound Rudolph threw for 3,777 yards (63% completions) with a 25/4 TD/INT ratio. He will put a bow on the current campaign in a date with Colorado in the Alamo Bowl on Thursday.

Oklahoma State redshirt junior DT Vincent Taylor is still weighing his options for the 2017 season.

Taylor previously said he would announce his decision following the school's bowl game. Taylor turns 23 years old in January, and we doubt he wants to be a 24-year-old rookie. Taylor has been a staple of the Cowboys defense over the last two years.

Oklahoma State junior WR James Washington is leaning towards to returning to school for the 2017 season, according to beat writer Jenni Carlson.

This is huge news, as the 2017 class lacks top end receivers, and James Washington has a number of fans in the scouting community. On the season, Washington registered 1,209 yards and nine touchdowns on 62 catches this year, posting back to back 1,000-plus yard seasons. Oklahoma State could do some damage in 2017.

Oklahoma State junior QB Mason Rudolph is expected to return to school for the 2017 season.

Beat writer Jenni Carlson notes Rudolph will wait to make his final decision after receiving feedback from the NFL, but he is expected to return for one last year of eligibility. Rudolph has started 27 games, and many view him as a mid-round draft pick whenever he decides to enter the NFL. At least three of the four Cowboys who requested grades seem to be returning to school.

Oklahoma State junior QB Mason Rudolph completed 11 of 25 attempts for 186 yards in the school's 38-20 loss to Oklahoma.

Rudolph added a rushing touchdown, but as a whole his day was not positive. Rudolph's name is not frequently mentioned among the top passing prospects, so expect him to return for the 2017 season.

Oklahoma State senior TE Blake Jarwin has accepted an invite to the East-West Shrine Game.

Jarwin has been used relatively sparingly on offense this season, catching 16 passes for 280 yards and a touchdown. For his Oklahoma State career, the 6-foot-5, 248-pounder owns a 38-587-4 receiving line. Over the summer, ESPN's Brandon Chatmon praised Jarwin's "size, speed and ball skills." While he has accepted the invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game on January 21, his collegiate career hasn't quite wrapped up just yet. One final Bedlam showdown with Oklahoma awaits this weekend, as well as OU's yet-to-be-determined bowl.

Oklahoma State redshirt sophomore DE Cole Walterscheid was arrested on Sunday morning and has been charged with public intoxication.

So, here's a weird one for you to tell your estranged family members about while attempting to navigate awkward small talk on Thanksgiving. Per the Oklahoma State police department, Walterscheid was arrested in the early morning hours on Sunday after an officer noticed him passed out on top of an object in a grassy lot. That object turned out to be the car topper for a Jimmy John's delivery vehicle. According to the arrest affidavit, the officer asked Walterscheid where he procured the car decoration and he said "at work." When he was asked if he worked at Jimmy John's, he replied in the negative. OSU has yet to respond to the tale of this drunken adventure. An 11-game starter, Walterscheid's status for next weekend's game against Oklahoma has not yet been determined. The Cowboys are off on bye over the upcoming holiday.

Following Saturday's win over TCU, Oklahoma State HC Mike Gundy indicated that he views his Cowboys as a Playoff contender.

Gundy attempted to pry open the brain of the Playoff committee, saying, "I know Kirby [Hocutt] had mentioned that the committee feels a certain way about that game. I think Kirby's playing poker and that they see us as a 10-win team. That's just my opinion." "That game," in this case, would be the Cowboys' controversial Hail Mary/lateral loss to Central Michigan in Week 2, one that should not have been, as a blatant officiating failure allowed the Chippewas a chance for their final, dramatic play. Scrubbing that loss off their resume, their lone legitimate defeat came at the hands of Baylor on September 24. "Nobody will convince me that we didn't get the win [against Central Michigan]," Gundy said. He has one vocal supporter in Oklahoma HC Bob Stoops, who couldn't resist taking an officiating shot, saying of Oklahoma State on Saturday night, "In my eyes, they only got one loss. You know, if you played by the rules."

Oklahoma State junior QB Mason Rudolph went 17-of-24 for 207 yards and a touchdown in a 31-6 win over TCU on Saturday.

Rudolph, who didn't need to take many chances today with the running game humming, improved to 21-5 as starter. Following its seventh consecutive victory, the Cowboys (9-2, 7-1, No. 11 CFP) will play eighth-ranked Oklahoma in their regular-season finale for the Big 12 title.
