NORMAN (AP) – For a team that went six years without losing at home, struggles on the road were always magnified at Oklahoma.
That’s starting to turn around.
The No. 13 Sooners (7-2, 5-1 Big 12) are perfect away from home so far this season, winning all three of their true road games and walloping Texas in the neutral-site Red River Rivalry game. There are two tests left: Saturday at West Virginia (5-4, 2-4) and the season finale at TCU.
Coach Bob Stoops says he hopes it’s starting to become “irrelevant” in his program whether a game is on Owen Field or elsewhere. His Sooners haven’t gone unbeaten on the road since 2008, when they played for the national championship.
They’ve lost at least two road games every season since then.
