NORMAN — Between 2008 and 2012, the Oklahoma football team has won three Big 12 championships, played in one national championship game and gone 3-2 in bowl games.
Still, according to a new Pollspeak.com list, the Sooners have been the most overrated major college football team during that time.
To compile its list of the most overrated and underrated teams, Pollspeak.com compared where each team was ranked in the preseason Associated Press Top 25 poll with where it finished in the final rankings that year.
Over that five-season span, the Sooners were only underrated before the 2010 season, when they were ranked No. 7 and finished No. 6 after winning a Big 12 title and the Fiesta Bowl.
After Oklahoma, USC, Georgia, Virginia Tech and Nebraska rounded out the study’s top-five most overrated teams.
Stanford, Cincinnati, TCU, Oregon and Utah were the most underrated teams, in order.
