For years, the Sooners’ best always seemed to come out when they were wearing crimson and playing in Norman. Maybe that will return against the Bears. Saturday’s game is one of two home games OU still has on the schedule. There’s a chance to start another winning streak as the 2012 season draws to a close. Just don’t bring up the history to Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops. He downplayed the significance of OU’s home dominance for years. Losing two home games this season doesn’t mean anything has changed.
“We’ve got a decent home record,” he said. “You’re not gonna win every one at home for 14 years. Home-field advantage is pretty decent. All the sudden now we can’t win at home, OK, yeah. I don’t buy any of that.”
