NORMAN, Okla. -- Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops sees many reasons for his third-ranked Sooners to travel to the Dallas area for a rare season-opener away from home.
There's the fertile recruiting base that has produced top players like offensive tackle Trent Williams and defensive end Jeremy Beal, a strong alumni base, and it's close enough that hometown fans can make the trip.
But it's not something he wants to make a habit.
"I don't think anybody's looking to take games away from Norman, Okla., very often," Stoops said Tuesday. "I know (athletic director) Joe (Castiglione) is very sensitive to that. I don't know what the numbers are but in this community, for our university, for the whole community and the town, you don't want to see it very much. We're not looking to do it very much at all."
