Oklahoma looks to pass forward to more Big 12 championships

DALLAS (AP) – Bob Stoops is bringing a pass-happy offense back to Oklahoma.

The Sooners want to get back to winning Big 12 Conference championships. Their two-year title drought is the longest in their 16 seasons under Stoops.

Even after an 8-5 season capped by a lopsided Orange Bowl loss, Stoops said Tuesday at Big 12 media days that a long track record of success gives him optimism. The Sooners have won eight Big 12 titles, and were national champions in 2000, the coach’s second season at Oklahoma.

Oklahoma and Texas, which won the league’s last national championship a decade ago, are now chasing TCU and Baylor, the Big 12 co-champs from a year ago that are picked 1-2 in the league’s preseason poll this season.
