Rankings from AP Poll
The Sooners went undefeated and were ranked third in both final polls, released in late November at the end of the regular season. Because of a conference "no-repeat" rule, Oklahoma did not play in a bowl game. Unranked runner-up Nebraska was invited to the Orange Bowl, and was defeated 34–7 by #14 Duke.
