The Oklahoma Sooners are a college football program steeped in tradition.

The team was started in 1895 by a student from Kansas who played football back in his home state. After 10 years, the program got more serious and hired their first permanent coach, Bennie Owen, and the team grew from there.

In the program's history, the Sooners have amassed a total of 811 wins to just 304 losses, winning 43 conference titles, seven national championships and producing five Heisman Trophy winners.

The team has become a mainstay in BCS bowls under current head coach Bob Stoops, and its players are consistently picked in the NFL Draft.
