A look at the all-time leading passers in Oklahoma Sooners history

·3 min read

The Oklahoma Sooners have a storied history when it comes to their football program. The school has won 917 college football games, which is the sixth-most ever. Its winning percentage of 0.726 is also the sixth-best. It has seven national championships and holds the most conference championships all-time, 50.

During that time plenty of notable gunslingers have donned the Crimson and Cream. Among the top passers in Sooners’ history, you have Jack Mildren in 1969-71, Bob Warmack from 1966-68, and into the early ’90s with current assistant Cale Gundy.

It might feel like a bit of recency bias when you bring up the names of Sam Bradford, Kyler Murray, Baker Mayfield, Landry Jones or even Jason White. However, they are among the very best due to the modern era of college football. Just look at the current head coach that loves to throw the ball around. Lincoln Riley learned from another OU assistant, Mike Leach.

Currently, the starting quarterback, Spencer Rattler is putting up big numbers. So much so that after just one season, he was cracked the top 15 in school history. Provided he replicates last season’s success, the former Gatorade Player of the Year could climb as high as the top five.
