Super Sooners

Oklahoma survived every test, as did BCS

Oklahoma left no room for debate. The Sooners, ranked No. 20 in the preseason, closed out the year as the only unbeaten team in college football after a 13-2 win over Florida State in the Orange Bowl. The victory saved face for the BCS, writes SI's Tim Layden, and showed that Bob Stoops knows what he's doing. As we take a peek at 2001, CNNSI.com's Stewart Mandel expects -- what else? -- another unforgettable season.
