The Norman Transcript
Which teams had critical games at home used to be the deciding factor in the Big 12 Conference race.
That seems to have changed.
Big 12 teams are 24-13 (60.0 winning percentage) on the road this season. That's very close to what teams have done at home (30-18, 62.5 winning percentage).
Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops isn't surprised.
"I believe it's a tough league in that everybody is good," OU coach Bob Stoops said. "If you're not at your best or you have a few turnovers or something you're gonna be on the wrong end of it."
The Sooners are the example. It's 3-0 in road games this season, but 2-2 at home. The losses were to No. 3 Kansas State and No. 4 Notre Dame, but OU hasn't had two losses at Owen Field in the same season since 1998.
