NORMAN — Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops was asked during Monday’s news conference about the wide open nature of the Big 12 Conference, which has just one unbeaten team left in Kansas State.

“I don’t look that far,” Stoops said. “I have to play this week. I don’t get involved in those conversations. At least I try not.”

He later admitted having a “sense” of who in the conference is good and who isn’t, but said he “isn’t much for sharing” those views.

“We have our opinions, but I’m not gonna go stating them,” Stoops said.

So did he think his squad would hang nearly 700 yards of total offense on Texas last weekend, when OU won 63-21 in the Cotton Bowl?

“I don’t know that I anticipate that,” he said.

How about holding the Longhorns to two first downs in the first half?

“Probably not, but who knows?” he responded. “It’s always possible.”
