Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops says he is dealing internally with players about some postgame incidents caught on film after the 16th-ranked Sooners rallied to win in double overtime at Tennessee.

After the game, video caught Sooners linebacker and team captain Eric Striker shouting foul language directed at the SEC before leaving the field. There was also a photo of safety Hatari Byrd with his left arm raised and middle finger extended toward the crowd.

Stoops said Monday on the Big 12 coaches teleconference that he was already working on ways to educate players about that kind of behavior. He didn't elaborate.

That will likely stand out as the Big 12's top victory against out-of-conference opponents this season.
