Quest For Elusive Conference Road Victory Continues For Oklahoma Tonight At Colorado

The Sooners own an 87-48 record against the Buffs but have lost their last three games in this series and four of the last five when the games are played in Boulder. Meanwhile, Colorado is currently riding a four game losing streak (@ Iowa State, Kansas, Missouri, @ Kansas State) and have lost seven of their last eight games with that lone win coming against Nebraska.
