Arizona football: What to know about the Oklahoma Sooners, Wildcats’ Alamo Bowl opponent

The Arizona Wildcats plan to prepare for the Alamo Bowl as if it’s a championship game. It helps to have a championship-caliber opponent on the other side.

The crimson and cream Oklahoma Sooners are among the blue bloods of college football, having claimed seven national championships and 50 conference championships. Only Ohio State and Michigan have spent more weeks in the Associated Press poll.

The OU team that Arizona will face on Dec. 28 in San Antonio isn’t at the same level as some of the great Sooners squads of the past, but second-year head coach Brent Venables has plenty of talent at his disposal.
