Overview

The Oklahoma Football Encyclopedia: 2nd Edition by Ray Dozier


The Oklahoma Football Encyclopedia is an historical description of every University of Oklahoma football game from the beginning in 1895 through today. Learn how the team got its start and how Coach Bennie Owen laid the foundation for the Sooners to become one of the most respected teams on the college football scene. Bud Wilkinson, Barry Switzer, and Bob Stoops later directed the Sooners to college football’s elite prize. Wilkinson was a great teacher of the Split-T formation, which guided the Sooners to three national championships, 72 consecutive conference games without a loss, and a major college winning streak. Switzer, a master recruiter, implemented the Wishbone formation, which brought another three national titles and 12 conference crowns to Norman. After the Sooner football program had dropped to mediocrity status, Stoops turned the program around and won the national championship in his second year at the helm.

This book, now in its second edition, provides insight into Sooner Magic. Many OU football teams appeared to have a supernatural force carry them to victory when victory was not assured. Was it sleight of hand? Smoke and mirrors? No, just pure talent and inspiration helped push the Sooners to the overwhelming tradition the teams have displayed on the gridiron.
