Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops not overwhelmed by Tennessee atmosphere
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:
Stoops feisty when asked about TN atmosphere "Come on, we’ve had Notre Dame and Florida St prior to that. We’ve been on this stage before."

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.
