(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By JEFF LATZKE AP College Football Writer For a team that went six years without losing at home, struggles on the road were always magnified at Oklahoma.
That's starting to turn around.
The No. 13 Sooners (7-2, 5-1 Big 12) are perfect away from home so far this season, winning all three of their true road games and walloping Texas in the neutral-site Red River Rivalry game. There are two tests left: Saturday at West Virginia (5-4, 2-4) and the season finale at TCU.
Coach Bob Stoops says he hopes it's starting to become ''irrelevant'' in his program whether a game is on Owen Field or elsewhere. His Sooners haven't gone unbeaten on the road since 2008, when they played for the national championship.
They've lost at least two road games every season since then.

Oklahoma's stingy secondary is getting another chance to slow down a 3,000-yard passer.
The Sooners held Nick Florence to a season-low 172 yards in a win over Baylor last week. On Saturday night, No. 13 Oklahoma will try to put the kibosh on West Virginia's Geno Smith.
The Sooners have allowed only two opponents to throw for more than 200 yards this season.
The Sooners are 2-2 all-time against West Virginia, but suffered a 48-28 Fiesta Bowl shellacking in the last meeting despite having Sam Bradford and crew, and they'll look to win in their first trip to Morgantown. Sooners Illustrated tells you how they can get it done.
The Oklahoma Sooners survived a scare in hostile territory Friday. In front of a record homecoming crowd of 6,421, the Sooners narrowly avoided an upset at the hand of the Texas-Arlington Mavericks, escaping with a 63-59 win, improving to 2-0 on the year.

The third-ranked Fighting Irish have needed overtime twice and haven't won a game at Notre Dame Stadium by more than a touchdown, yet are still a win away from their first perfect home season in 14 years.

Since then, the Irish had a...
