I thought I'd posted this last week, but apparently didn't.

Earlier this year, I'd observed that the Frogs have won the last two contests of this storied series played in Norman. It got me to thinking, what other teams have left their last two contests at Owen Field as victors?

The answer is...Notre Dame and Southern Cal. OU is 2-6-1 against Southern Cal (0-5-1 since 1973) and 1-8 against Notre Dame. The Fish Eaters also were the last team to beat the Sooners before the 47 game win streak, as well as the team to break it.

Anyway, back to the Frogs. The Sooners are 6-4 all-time vs the Frogs, but the last time OU beat TCU in Norman was 1954, when Othol Martian was patrolling the sidelines for the Horned Lizards. The Sooners have never lost in Fort Worth (4-0), are 1-0 playing in OKC, and 1-4 in Norman.

It's not too late to move the location.
