When the season began, many people expected the Oklahoma Sooners to be right in the thick of the national title race. All the pieces were in place for the Sooners to make a big run through their schedule on the way to Glendale, Arizona for the national championship game.

The Sooners pushed through a tough non conference schedule and defeated arch-rival Texas in the Cotton Bowl to stand at 5-0 and ranked No. 6 in both the USA Today Coaches Poll and the AP Poll at this de facto halfway point of the season.
