College football coaches are often judged by how their teams fare against elite competition, so, last week, the Wall Street Journal compiled a graphic detailing the records of every major coach against ranked opponents.
Which coach has the most impressive record against top 25 teams? That would be Bob Stoops. The Oklahoma coach has gone 50-23 in his career against ranked foes. Stoops’ 50 wins are the most of any coach at their current school.
Today, the University of Oklahoma took out a full page ad in a state newspaper congratulating Stoops on his record.

Stoops has proven he can beat anyone in the country. Oklahoma fans surely hope that ability will lead to a conference championship and berth to the College Football Playoff this season.
Oklahoma starts the season Saturday at 7 p.m. E.T. against Louisiana Tech.
