Rankings from AP Poll

Conference play began with a win over the Texas Tech Red Raiders in Norman on October 2, and ended with a win over the Colorado Buffaloes in the Big 12 Championship Game on December 4. The Sooners finished the regular season 12–0 (9–0 in Big 12) while winning their third Big 12 title and their 39th conference title overall. They were invited to the 2005 Orange Bowl, which served as the BCS National Championship Game that year, where they lost to the USC Trojans, 19–55. USC was later forced to vacate this win because of the ineligibility of Reggie Bush, but Oklahoma still counts it as a loss.

Following the season, Jammal Brown was selected 13th overall and Mark Clayton 22nd in the 2005 NFL Draft, along with Brodney Pool, Mark Bradley and Dan Cody in the 2nd round, Brandon Jones in the 3rd, Antonio Perkins in the 4th, Donte Nicholson, Mike Hawkins and Lance Mitchell in the 5th, and Wes Sims in the 6th. This total number of 11 stands as the most Sooners taken in the NFL Draft in the 16 years of the Stoops era.
