Oklahoma Sooners Football | Best & Worst Under Bob Stoops Pt. 1

Fifth Best Win | 2003 vs Texas A&M | 77-0 Final

In 2003, the Oklahoma Sooners established themselves as one of the most dominant teams in all of college football. Running over opponent after opponent, Texas A&M stood next in line. Taking the field, Jason White and the offense produced at an extremely high level.

Yet, it was the defense that shined brightest. Through four quarters of play, the OU defense allowed 54 total yards of offense from the Aggies. Surrendering just three first downs, the Sooners forced Texas A&M to punt 12 times throughout the course of the game. The combined effort produced a lopsided 77-0 victory.

At 77-0, the Big 12 record for margin of victory was set.

Fifth Worst Loss | 2009 vs BYU |14-13 Final

Paired against the No. 24 BYU Cougars to begin the 2009 season, the Oklahoma Sooners made the short trip to a neutral site — Arlington, TX. Fan expectations soared despite replacing four starting offensive linemen. Yet, one bone rattling hit would change the course of the year drastically.

As the ball was snapped, quarterback Sam Bradford dropped into the backfield with second remaining in the first half. Unable to provide protection, a blitzing Coleby Clawson broke free of the offensive line. Scrambling to the right, Bradford made a throw as the tackle was applied. Driving through the tackle, Clawson planted Bradford on the ground leading to a shoulder injury that would sideline the Heisman winner.

Forced into the action, Landry Jones posted a mediocre outing. The rushing attack of DeMarco Murray and Chris Brown failed time and time again leaving the Sooners desperate for yardage. Ultimately, Oklahoma would fall 14-13 losing the No. 3 pre-season ranking along with the starting quarterback.
