NORMAN — With Saturday’s 42-34 victory over Baylor, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops surpassed legendary coach Bud Wilkinson (145-29-4) as the second winningest coach in the program’s history.
“What Coach Wilkinson and what he did here is absolutely amazing. The win streak is really just incredible. I don’t believe it will ever be touched again. The national championships, the sustained success for so long,” Stoops said. “Again, I don’t look at numbers to be honest with you; it’s just not me. I’m a long way from sitting in a rocking chair and reflecting on it.”
The victory lifted Stoops’ all-time record to 146-36. Barry Switzer remains OU’s winningest coach at 157-29-4.
