Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops anticipated getting questions about the Southeastern Conference going into his team's home matchup against Tennessee on Saturday. And again, Stoops did not have much to say about the perceived dominance of the conference. 

Last year, Stoops said that the SEC’s dominance was propaganda, even though it had won the last seven BCS Championships at the time.

He was asked Monday if the SEC’s athletes are better than those in other conferences.

"I don't know," Stoops said, according to ESPN.com. "That hasn't been the case in our experience. Whoever we've played, that hasn't been much of a difference."

Stoops, who has a 162-39 record in 16 seasons at Oklahoma, said that Tennessee will be a challenge for his team.

“We've got respect for the program," Stoops said. "The coach is getting in their second season now. They're a better football team than they were a year ago."
