Oklahoma football: Sooner stats that’ll put a smile on your face

The Oklahoma football heritage is one of the most storied and successful in all of college football.

The Sooners’ seven national championships since 1950 are exceeded only by Alabama with 13 and no Power Five team has won more conference championships than OU’s 50, 14 of which have been garnered in the 25-year history of the Big 12 Conference.

That is just a small sample of the many lofty achievements of this iconic college football brand.

Here are some other remarkable OU football statistics that should put a collective smile on the face of the Sooner Nation:

65.3 — Percentage of Oklahoma’s scoring offense that is back for the 2021 season.

68-12 — Oklahoma’s record since the beginning of the 2015 season, 4th best in college football over that time behind Alabama (80-6, Clemson (79-8) and Ohio State (69-8).
