After earning three straight College Football Playoff berths, the Oklahoma Sooners missed out in 2020. Early losses to Kansas State and Iowa State doomed Lincoln Riley's team.
Get ready for an offseason loaded with hype, however.
Capped by a 55-20 demolition of Florida in the Cotton Bowl, the Sooners ended the season on an eight-game winning streak. They finished 9-2, won a fifth consecutive Big 12 title and finally paired a legitimately strong defense with an efficient offense.
Obliterating short-handed Florida was impressive, but the more important note is what Oklahoma brings back in 2021.
Spencer Rattler totaled 3,191 yards and 34 touchdowns in his first season as a starter.
