Shinn at 3 p.m.: Teams need their A-games home or away

NORMAN — 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.
