Oklahoma’s 2008 football season has to be one of the favorites of the Bob Stoops era for multiple reasons. The Sooners won the Big 12 championships, Sam Bradford won the Heisman Trophy, and offensive records fell at an alarming rate.
The high-powered OU offense scored 35-plus points in thirteen of their fourteen games, 40-plus in twelve games, 50-plus in nine games, and ended the regular season on a streak of five consecutive 60-plus point games.
Bradford completed 68% of his passes for 4,720 yards, fifty touchdowns and just eight interceptions as a sophomore that season. Oklahoma’s offense wasn’t just dependant on Bradford’s golden arm though. Running backs Chris Brown and Demarco Murray each ran for over a thousand yards with 34 combined touchdowns. They also both averaged 5.6 yards per carry.
Defensively the Sooners held opponents to an average of 24.5 points per game and were led by Jeremy Beal who paced the team with 61 total tackles and 8.5 sacks.
