As you can see, Oklahoma has recorded 35 ten-win seasons throughout program history. Under Bob Stoops, ten-win season have become a standard as the head coach has 12 under his belt. Could 2015 mark the next?
The last time Oklahoma recorded a ten-win season, Trevor Knight won the starting quarterback job over the fan favorite, Blake Bell. Constantly fighting injuries, the Sooners were forced to use up the entire depth chart at the position but managed wins over Notre Dame, TCU, and Alabama in Sugar Bowl.
