Rankings from AP Poll

The 2000 Oklahoma Sooners football team represented the University of Oklahoma in the 2000 NCAA Division I-A football season, the 106th season of Sooner football. The team was led by Bob Stoops in his second season as head coach. They played their home games at Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman. During this season, they competed in the Big 12 Conference.

The Sooners opened the season ranked #19,[1] the first time they had made it into a pre-season poll in five years. Conference play began with a win over the Kansas Jayhawks at home on September 30, and ended with a win over the Kansas State Wildcats in the Big 12 Championship Game on December 2. The Sooners finished the regular season 12-0 (9-0 in Big 12, including conference championship game), while winning their first Big 12 title and their 37th conference title overall. They were invited to the 2001 Orange Bowl, which served as the BCS National Championship Game that year, where they beat the Florida State Seminoles by a score of 13-2. This is Oklahoma's seventh claimed and most recent national championship.

Following the season, Torrance Marshall was selected in the third round of the 2001 NFL Draft, along with Josh Heupel in the sixth.
