OU is home to groundbreaking research, outstanding faculty, and amazing students, ready for the next exciting chapter in life's story.
Created by the Oklahoma Territorial Legislature in 1890, the University of Oklahoma is a doctoral degree-granting research university serving the educational, cultural, economic and health-care needs of the state, region and nation.
The University of Oklahoma is home to one of the most storied intercollegiate athletics programs in the nation. The Sooners boast 26 national championships in men's and women's sports, 251 team conference championships and more than 800 All-Americans.
The success of OU's teams contribute to a sense of pride in the community and across the state. The very mention of the word "Sooners" evokes a sense of tradition and championships. Nationwide, Oklahoma is synonymous with winning.
Samuel Jacob "Sam" Bradford (born November 8, 1987) is an American football quarterback for the St. Louis Rams of the National Football League (NFL). He was the first overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, after playing college football for the University of Oklahoma. In 2008, as a redshirt sophomore, Bradford became the second sophomore to win a Heisman Trophy. He also holds the NCAA record for most touchdown passes by a freshman quarterback, with 36.
In his first season in the NFL, Bradford set the record for most completions by a rookie in NFL history, which helped earn him the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award.
The track & field tradition at the University of Oklahoma is one that is steeped in tradition. Throughout its history, the OU program has seen 17 team conference titles, 38 individual NCAA titles, 386 first-team All-Americans and 430 individual conference titles. With its current state, there is no doubt that tradition will continue to grow.
By 1895, there were four faculty members, three men and one woman, and 100 students enrolled. Today there are more than 30,000 students at the University.
In 2000, the Sooners football team opened the season ranked number 19, the first time they opened the season ranked in five years. The Sooners opened 4–0, dominating their early season opponents by a combined score of 176–51.
Roy Lee Williams (born August 14, 1980) is a former American college and professional football player who was a safety in the National Football League (NFL) for nine seasons. He played college football for the University of Oklahoma, and was an All-American. He was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys eighth overall in the 2002 NFL Draft, and played professionally for the Cowboys and Cincinnati Bengals. He earned five straight Pro Bowl selections from 2003 to 2007. Williams is currently a sideline reporter for Oklahoma football games.
The annual Red River Shootout against arch-rival the University of Texas would prove to be the first signature victory of the Bob Stoops era. The Sooners dominated the Longhorns by a score of 63-14 in what was then the most lopsided upset in the history of the rivalry. Oklahoma running back Quentin Griffin smashed the Oklahoma record for most touchdowns in a game with six scores.
One of four Sooners honored as FCA All-American Scholar Athletes
While at Oklahoma, Carey was a member of three Big 12 Championship teams. She also made her mark in the classroom making the Big 12 all-academic team following her freshman, junior and senior seasons and a member of the Dean’s Honor Roll as a sophomore.
At Washburn Rural High School, she was a 1996 High School All-American as a junior while hitting .478 with 10 doubles, one triple, two home runs and 25 RBI. On the mound she was 48-3 with a 0.31 ERA and 130 strikeouts during her high school career. During her four-year run for the Junior Blues, she was 87-4 winning the state championship as a sophomore.
One of the most decorated players in Oklahoma softball history, Ashli Barrett will continue her association with the program as a graduate assistant coach during the 2002 season. Barrett, a two-time All-American for the Sooners, enters her first year on the coaching staff after lettering the last four years in the program.
The University of Oklahoma softball team has a prestigious tradition of not only being one of the nation’s best but winning against the nation’s best. The Sooners are 154-139 (.523) all-time against ranked opponents
