Bob Stoops Says SEC Comments Have Been Overblown, Laughs At Idea Of Being Entire Conference's Rival

If it's possible to be a rival of an entire conference, the Oklahoma football program seems to be one to the SEC. 

Sooners' coach Bob Stoops has questioned the SEC's overall strength, poked fun at Texas A&M's non-conference schedule and, perhaps most importantly, defeated the conference's flagship program, Alabama, in last January's Sugar Bowl. 

Stoops says his apparent disdain for the SEC has been overblown.

Oklahoma plays Tennessee this Saturday in Norman.

When it comes to the Stoops-SEC rivalry idea, that's a laughing matter.

Stoops' players seem to think otherwise, though.

Stoops is 23-7 all-time against SEC schools.

The Sooners and Volunteers are set to kickoff at 8 p.m. E.T. this Saturday.
