2012 Oklahoma Football Preview: Landmines And Rebounds

Since coming out of relative nowhere to win the 2000 national title, Bob Stoops' Sooners have finished lower in the postseason polls than in the preseason polls in nine of 11 seasons.

2012 West Virginia Football Preview: Winnipeg, Lubbock And Kindred Spirits
