Oklahoma State star running back Ollie Gordon II is not expected to miss any games in the wake of his DUI arrest.

“He’s going to play,” Cowboys coach Mike Gundy told ESPN on Tuesday.

Gundy said that any punishment for Gordon, the 2023 Doak Walker Award winner as the nation’s top running back, will be handled internally.

Gordon, 20, was arrested on June 30 in Oklahoma on suspicion of DUI and speeding charges.

Gundy said he brought Gordon to the Big 12 media day on Tuesday in Las Vegas so he could be accountable for his actions.

“I am deeply sorry for the actions that led to my arrest on June 30th,” Gordon posted on X on Monday. “I sincerely apologize to my family, everyone in our program, including our players, Coach Gundy, the staff, Oklahoma State University and our fans.

“Regardless of the outcome of this pending investigation, I did not uphold the values I have for myself and the values of the OSU football program. I am committed to learning and growing from this mistake and I will work to earn back the trust of those who I have disappointed. Thank you.”

Police said Gordon was pulled over on Interstate 35 near Moore, Okla., after being clocked at 82 mph and swerving in and out of traffic lanes.

An Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper detected “an odor associated with an alcoholic beverage” coming from the vehicle, according to the incident report. Police also found two bottles of liquor in the vehicle.

Gordon was taken to Cleveland County Jail after a breath test revealed a 0.11 blood alcohol content, over the legal limit for an adult younger than 21 years old, and also failed a second test while in custody with a 0.10 BAC.

Last season, Gordon was named an All-American and the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year and finished seventh in the Heisman Trophy vote after rushing for 1,732 yards and 21 touchdowns in 14 games.
