Best of Oklahoma set for 'College Football Live'
Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Griffin
I hear all the time from those of you claiming you need a football fix during the offseason.
That's why I think that ESPN's "College Football Live" is a must-watch every day.
The show currently is profiling the best of amateur football (college and high school) in each state during their swing through the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
The tour swings through Oklahoma on Friday where the "College Football Live 50 States Tour" will feature live interviews related to the state, including with prominent football figures, current coaches, and local writers. It will be shown on ESPN at 3:30 p.m. ET on Friday.
The show will also include debate between analysts and an online component for fans to pick each state's best coach, player and team. The featured guest on Friday's show will be 1988 Heisman Trophy winner Barry Sanders of Oklahoma State.
Here's the teams that have been nominated as the greatest in the history of the state of Oklahoma.
- 1956 Oklahoma (10-0)
- 1974 Oklahoma (10-0)
- 1975 Oklahoma (11-1)
- 1985 Oklahoma (11-1)
- 2000 Oklahoma (13-0)

The show will visit each of the seven states in the Big 12's footprint as the series plays out until Aug. 7. Keep watching the blog for reminders of when each Big 12 state will be highlighted.
