Oklahoma is still perfect, and still No. 1 in The Associated Press final regular season poll.
The Sooners (12-0) completed a perfect regular season with a 27-24 win over Kansas State in the Big 12 title game Saturday night, and will try to win their first national championship since 1985 by beating No. 3 Florida State in the Orange Bowl on Jan. 3.
Playing in the Orange Bowl is nothing new for Oklahoma. It's just that it's been awhile 13 years since its last appearance. The Sooners were unbeaten in 1987, but lost to Miami 20-14. Overall, OU is 11-5 in Orange Bowl games, and a win over the Seminoles could result in a sixth AP national title.
The final AP media poll will be released after the game.
Oklahoma, the nation's only major unbeaten team, received 67 first-place votes and 1,768 points Sunday from the 71 sports writers and broadcasters on the AP panel.
Miami (10-1), Big East champions, remained No. 2 with three first-place votes.
