Come Sunday, Oklahoma’s defensive tackle Casey Walker isn’t much of a football junkie.

After a week of watching film on the next opponent, he doesn’t overload on too many NFL games.

“During the week I watch so much football, I’m kind of tired of it,” Walker said. “I’d rather watch tennis.”

The only players he knows on the pro tour are Venus and Serena Williams.

But Walker does pay attention to college football outside of the Big 12 Conference. When the media began to talk about bowl predictions, Walker talked about the Sugar and Fiesta Bowl.

“I don’t want to go there again,” Walker said about the Fiesta Bowl, where the Sooners have been the last three years. “I don’t, but I will. Shoot, I’d take New Orleans.”

That’s when some media members told him that Oklahoma was projected to meet Texas A&M in the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans. before the Aggies beat Alabama last weekend.

“Yeah that’s true,” Walker said. “That quarterback is nice. He’s nice. We’ll just have to see. We have to worry about the rest of this season.”
