Oklahoma’s Bob Stoops and Kansas State’s Bill Snyder are both unable to explain the amount of success had by the road team in their series of late.


The away team has walked out of the opposing team’s stadium with victories in the last five meetings between Oklahoma and Kansas State, including last year’s 55-0 blowout by the Sooners in Manhattan. Asked if there is a reason for the road team having such success in this series, neither head coach could come up with an explanation.

“That’s the way it’s been,” Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops said Monday on the Big 12 Coaches Teleconference. “I can’t give you any particular reasons why. Whichever team played the best won that day.”

The Sooners have one of the best home-field advantages in college football, but Kansas State was able to go into Norman in 2012 and 2014 and come away with victories.

“It beats the tar out of me,” Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder said when asked why they have had success at Oklahoma. “They are a good football team and always have been. When we have been fortunate to win, I think we’ve played well, not that they haven’t, but it’s just year by year.

“I don’t think where we’ve played has that much to do with it.”

The Sooners are favored to win the Saturday’s matchup in Norman, but as Stoops said, his team still needs to improve and the result from last season means absolutely nothing.

“Last year has nothing to do with this year,” Stoops said. “We’re both two completely different teams and we have to continue to get better as a team.”
