Texas A&M's Sumlin: If OU wants to play, we'll take him up on that

Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin, a former Oklahoma assistant under Bob Stoops, fired back at Stoops’ recent comments about the Aggies’ non-conference schedule on Friday night.
Sumlin, speaking at a Houston A&M Club event, said he’d be happy to play the Sooners again soon.
“Stoops has the right to say whatever he wants,” Sumlin said. “But if he wants to play again, we’ll take him up on that.”
Stoops poked at Texas A&M’s non-conference schedule Wednesday on ESPNU when asked about the lack of a conference championship game in the Big 12.
“If you play a tough out-of-conference schedule with nine conference games, you’re right there with everybody,” Stoops said. “For instance A&M I think has Lamar, Rice, SMU and Louisiana-Monroe and eight conference games. That isn’t all bad. Let’s face it, not everybody in that league’s beating everybody.”

“Will they put you on the schedule?” the host asked.
“That’d be fine,” Stoops responded. “At the end of the day, like I said, we’re already teeing it up. We’ve got Tennessee, then we’ve got a home-and-home with Ohio State and we’ve got several coming after that and like I said, just got off of Notre Dame. We’re not hiding from anybody.”

Sumlin’s Aggies beat Oklahoma 41-13 in the 2013 Cotton Bowl, outscoring the Sooners 27-0 after halftime.
