In massive stars, rotation and oscillatory waves can have a tight interplay. In order to assess the importance of additional angular momentum transport mechanisms other than rotation, we compare the asteroseismic properties of a uniformly rotating model and a differentially rotating one. Accordingly, we employ the observed period spacing of 36 dipole g-modes in the Kepler ~ 3.2M⊙ target KIC 7760680 to discriminate between these two models. We favor the uniformly rotating model, which fully satisfies all observational constraints. Therefore, effcient angular momentum transport by additional mechanisms such as internal gravity waves, heat-driven modes and magnetic field is needed during early main sequence evolution of massive stars.
