The Sooners had something to prove in the Big 12 title game -- that they belong in the BCS championship. They did so and, in the process, broke the single-season NCAA scoring record. A look at teams they passed:

Most Points Scored,
Single Season FBS History
Season Team Points
2008 Oklahoma 702
2006 Hawaii 656
1983 Nebraska 654
2005 Texas 652
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Oklahoma set an NCAA record for points in a season Saturday night, then kept scoring in the Big 12 championship game.

The Sooners went into the matchup with Missouri trailing Hawaii's 2006 record of 656 points by 16. Oklahoma scored 10 points in the first quarter against the Tigers, and broke the record 2:04 into the second on a 10-yard pass from Sam Bradford to Juaquin Iglesias.

Oklahoma then cruised to a 62-21 victory over Missouri to win the Big 12 title and advance to the BCS title game in Miami.

The Sooners didn't slow down after that, scoring three more touchdowns in the second quarter to lead 38-7 at halftime.
