Why is Oklahoma so good this year on the road?
As for their road games, the question directed at Oklahoma is completely opposite. The Sooners are undefeated on the road this year.
So why is Oklahoma so good on the road?
Stoops agreed that it was a certain maturity.
“It’s shown up there and it’s shown up in tough games here at home, too,” Stoops said Monday. “They’ve continued to work and have a great attitude about what they’re doing and have confidence in how they’re playing. They keep playing well and finding a way to win.”
Senior and quarterback Landry Jones said he also attributes the road success to the kind of leaders the Sooners have on the team this year.
“And I think we just execute,” Jones said. “That comes with practicing better and then taking what we’ve practiced into games.”
Stoops has praised this year’s group of seniors by saying that they have their priorities straight – going late, coming to practice, not being late – and that they have passed that onto the rest of the team.
