The Oklahoma Sooners football season came to an end in the College Football Playoff at the hands of the Clemson Tigers. Behind a 10-2 record, we were certain the crimson and cream would fall in the rankings. But, what we didn't know was how far.

Now, with the national championship game in the rearview mirror, the final AP Poll has officially been released. Apparently the drop wasn't all too far as Oklahoma ended the year as the No. 5 team in the country. The top five finish marks the 30th time the Sooners have done so since 1936...a mark no other program has acheived.

Jumping ahead of them, Stanford capped off their year with a crushing defeat of Iowa and Ohio State defeated Notre Dame by sixteen. Here is a complete look at the final AP Top 25:
