NORMAN, Okla. – The 2000 Sooners didn’t exactly follow the traditional formula to win the national title. Oklahoma didn’t have a top 38 rushing offense nationally. Nor a top 15 run defense. The Sooners didn’t have a player selected in the first round in the subsequent NFL draft, either.

The last seven national champions, however, have been able to check off all three of those items.

And, as WolverineNation’s Mike Rothstein points out, those champs also ranked at least 23rd in scoring offense, 37th in passing efficiency and 40th in sacks. They also had a rusher or receiver total double-digit touchdowns, and didn’t lose a non-conference game.
