The Oklahoma Sooners came in at No. 3 in the initial BCS poll, the ranking that ultimately determines who plays for the national championship. This is a great spot for the Sooners, considering the two teams ahead of them—Alabama and LSU—play each other in November.

Oklahoma also has a chance to knock the No. 4 team back at the end of the season when they play in-state rival Oklahoma State in their annual Bedlam game.
