Bob Stoops Takes A Shot At Texas A&M's Non-Conference Schedule, 'A Bunch Of Toughies'

Bob Stoops can recite Texas A&M's 2014 non-conference schedule by heart. 

If you can't, here it is: home vs. Lamar Sept. 6, home vs. Rice Sept. 13, at Southern Methodist Sept. 20, and home vs. UL Monroe Nov. 1. 

Impressed? The Oklahoma coach isn't. 

Stoops might be taking a shot at his former Big 12 opponent, but he's fairly correct with his opinion. None of the teams the Aggies will play in the non-conference strike fear. Texas A&M does have a pretty difficult conference schedule, though, having to play Alabama, Auburn, and LSU, with two of those contests coming on the road. 

Oklahoma, meanwhile, faces Louisiana Tech, Tulsa, and Tennessee in the non-conference. 

Texas A&M also might have to play in an SEC Championship Game, something Oklahoma doesn't have to worry about. Stoops is aware of this. 

Texas A&M opens its season Aug. 28 against South Carolina, while Oklahoma opens at home against Louisiana Tech Aug. 30.
