10 Reasons the Oklahoma Sooners Will Finish Year Where It Started

There's no doubt that the Oklahoma Sooners are always contenders. Year after year, with the exception of 2009 when the Sooners were struck with injuries, they constantly finish towards the top of the rankings. 

Last season was no exception. The Sooners finished the season with a 12-2 record, a Big 12 Championship and a BSC Bowl birth, which they used to demolish the University of Connecticut by 28 points. 

Even though the Sooners lost some key impact players to the NFL Draft, such as DeMarco Murray and Jeremy Beal, most of the squad is returning and ready to improve on their success from last season. 

This is why, when the first edition of the Coaches Poll came out on Aug. 4, it was no surprise to see the Sooners sitting at the top. 

Unfortunately, the Sooners have suffered a major blow already. Star linebacker Travis Lewis is set to miss up to eight weeks with a broken bone in his toe. 

But is this enough to knock the Sooners out of the spotlight? Not a chance.

Lewis will be back in time for the Texas game, which means he'll miss the Florida State game, but that will be the only challenge that OU will have to face during his injured stint. 

If you're still skeptical, here are ten reasons why Oklahoma will stay on top throughout the season.
