·2 min read

For the best teams in college football, it is more than just winning games at home, you must win your fair share of games on the road.

Since the new era of the Big 12 Conference began in 2012, the Oklahoma Sooners have been the best team in their home stadium. When hosting teams at Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, the Crimson and Cream have won 85.2% of those contests. Given they have a combined 96-22 record, they have shown that they can go on the road and come out victorious.
