FSU provides ultimate road test for Sooners

September, 16, 2011

Is Saturday’s showdown against No. 5 Florida State in Tallahassee the biggest nonconference game since Bob Stoops arrived at Oklahoma?

Jake Trotter of SoonerNation believes it's the biggest nonconference game for the Sooners in almost 25 years and one of the five biggest in program history.

Here's a snippet:
"It's great for college football," Stoops said. "It's great exposure. Everyone is going to talk about your program for a week leading up to the game. Fans love it -- we'll have a bunch going down there. These are exciting weekends for people."

Stoops has been in plenty of big games at OU. Four national championship appearances. Eight Big 12 title games. Top 10 tilts against Texas, Nebraska, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech and Missouri.

But Stoops never has coached in a nonconference game the magnitude of this one.
