Oklahoma was not suppose to defeat Florida State in the 2001 Orange Bowl. They were 11 point underdogs and were going up against the latest Heisman Trophy Winner at the time, quarterback Chris Weinke. But the Sooners outstanding defense led by Orange Bowl MVP Torrance Marshall sealed their 7th national championship with a 13-2 victory.

The Florida State offense was shutout with their only points coming from a safety on a special teams play late in the fourth. Their high powered offense was suppose to pass at will against the Sooners, but Weinke ended up throwing more incomplete passes than complete ones.

The two points allowed were the second lowest points allowed in a BCS game, right after Alabama's shutout of LSU in the 2011-12 national championship game.

Here's a video of one of the best moments in Oklahoma football history, where a fumble recovery by Roy Williams leads to a Quentin Griffin touchdown to seal the win in the fourth. It turned out to be the only touchdown of the game.

Two more days until kickoff!
