The 1951 season for the Sooners truly proved to be a season of destiny as the team prevailed in the National Championship under Head Coach Jack Baer. Baer coached at Oklahoma for 26 seasons which is still the longest tenured head coaching career in school history.
The Crimson and Cream went through the tournament undefeated with an overall record of 7-0 and were matched up against the University of Tennessee in the National Championship. The Sooners were clearly the underdog against the favored Volunteers but emerged victorious with a 3-2 score to claim the national title.
1951 was a great year for the University of Oklahoma as they won the National Championship in football and wrestling in addition to baseball. The Sooners were the very first school to win three national championships in one school year.
