OU - Florida State Not About The Numbers

NORMAN, Oklahoma – Three games is not a huge sample size, but it's also rather tough to ignore.

Three times OU has played a ranked non-conference opponent away from home, and all three times the Sooners have come away with a loss.

Two of those three games came in 2009, when starter Sam Bradford got hurt against BYU and the Sooners lost 14-13 in Arlington.

He was still out three games later when OU dropped a contest on the road at Miami.

The final game came in 2006, when OU lost the infamous 34-33 game to Oregon that had fans and media questioning the officiating for months afterward.

Some would say that each of those three losses has a bit of an asterisk by it, or at least extenuating circumstances around it.

But for the Sooners heading into a matchup at No. 5 Florida State, none of that matters.

OU coaches and players have dismissed the small historical sample of having trouble on the road and stated that their performance on the field on Saturday is all that matters.

News 9's Dean Blevins was in Norman to talk with coaches and players as they prepared for perhaps college football's biggest game so far this season.
