NORMAN, Okla. (AP) _ The fourth-ranked Oklahoma Sooners are getting ready for their first road game of the year and coaches say they're excited to learn how the team will handle it.

Friday's game at Tulsa may not be much of a trip but offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson is expecting a loud and rowdy crowd cheering for the Golden Hurricane.

It's also the first start outside Norman for freshman OU quarterback Sam Bradford.

Bradford has thrown 11 touchdown passes and only one interception in leading the Sooners to a 3-0 start.

Wilson says the trip gives OU a chance to work on managing the sound and crowd noise. He says it appears the new athletic complex in Tulsa's north end zone is creating an echo and may have caused problems for BYU last week.
