The 50 Most Badass College Football Teams

1956 Oklahoma Sooners

Coach: Bud Wilkinson
Best Player: : Jim Harris

Between 1954-56, the Sooners reeled off a still-unmatched streak of 47 consecutive wins, and the '56 edition was OU at its badass ass-kicking best. They played 10 teams and allowed only two of them to score touchdowns (Oklahoma gave up just four TDs on the year and pitched six shutouts); they failed to score more than 40 points just three times; they started the season with 36-0, 66-0, and 45-0 thrashings of North Carolina, Kansas State, and Texas, respectively; and they pulled off one of the greatest one-season rivalry steamrollerings of all time, defeating Iowa State 44-0, Missouri 67-14, Nebraska 54-6, and Oklahoma State 53-0 in a three-week span in November and December.
