The No. 19 Oklahoma Sooners will travel to Knoxville, Tenn., on Saturday for a showdown with No. 25 Tennessee.

On Monday, Stoops was asked about the gameday atmosphere at Neyland Stadium.

He said this:

In 2011, Oklahoma traveled to Tallahassee, Fla. and defeated Florida State 23-13. In 2013, the Sooners beat Notre Dame 35-21 in South Bend, Ind. So it’s easy to see Stoops’ point of being able to handle big-time, out-of-conference road games.

Last year, Stoops’ Sooners handled Tennessee easily in Norman, Okla., cruising to a 34-10 victory.

Stoops is also no stranger to taking shots at the SEC.
