Coaches Poll top 25: Oklahoma rockets up to No. 3 behind Clemson and Alabama
The Sooners won 10 games in a row and capped off the season with a Sugar Bowl victory
Fresh off its 35-19 win over Auburn in the Sugar Bowl, Oklahoma moves up four spots to No. 3 in the final USA Today Coaches Poll of the 2016-17 season. The Sooners, winners of 10 in a row, finish behind No. 1 Clemson and No. 2 Alabama.
Oklahoma became the first Big 12 team to finish conference play undefeated since the league went to a Round-Robin format. Though the Sooners lost two early games to Houston and Ohio State, the latter of which finished No. 6, they rebounded and became one of the hottest teams at year's end.
Miami was the biggest riser by moving up 11 spots to crack the top 25. Auburn fell five spots to No. 22.
