Bob Stoops to be inducted into Orange Bowl Hall of Fame

Bob Stoops will be among five new inductees into the Orange Bowl Hall of Fame. 

The former Oklahoma coach led the Sooners to three Orange Bowl appearances — in the 2000, 2004 and 2015 seasons. He went 1-2 in those games, with the win coming against Florida State in the 2000 national championship game. 

Stoops also led the Sooners to the 2009 BCS National Championship hosted by the Orange Bowl. Florida beat Oklahoma 24-14 in that game. 

Stoops compiled a 190-48 record in his 18 years at OU. He has the most wins of any coach in program history. 

He’ll be inducted into the Orange Bowl Hall of Fame alongside Frank Beamer, Scott Frost, Shaun Alexander and Derrick Alexander. They’ll be honored on Dec. 28 at the Orange Bowl coaches luncheon, and then again on the field during the game. 

Oklahoma and Alabama kick off at 7 p.m. on Dec. 29 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.
