At his weekly press conference, Mike Gundy announced that both starting right guard Larry Williams, as well as starting defensive end Cole Walterscheid are available and will play in this week’s Bedlam matchup.

Gundy says Cole Walterscheid will play on Saturday after being disciplined internally. #okstate— CRFF (@CowboysRFF) November 28, 2016
Williams was injured earlier in the year, and his return should help shore up the line for the Pokes in arguably the biggest game of the year.
Walterscheid, as you may remember, was arrested for public intox. He was found with a Jimmy John’s car topper. The corporate Twitter account shared their thoughts on the situation.

Walterscheid has 20 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, two sacks, and one forced fumble on the season.
Gundy also noted that linebackers Chad Whitener and Jordan Burton are also good to go and will play Saturday.

Both players should make an impact on Saturday, and their availability will certainly give the Pokes a boost. Stay tuned to CRFF as we bring you much more Bedlam coverage as the week goes on.
