Both the AP and Coaches final polls of the 2013 college football season hit on Jan. 7 and the Oklahoma Sooners finished in 6th place in both polls. As a matter of fact, both polls had the exact same rankings from first through sixth place.

The Sooners finished their season by beating the Alabama Crimson Tide, the team who won three of the last four national championships. It was enough to move the two-loss Sooners all the way to sixth place in the nation.

The Florida State Seminoles, who beat the Auburn Tigers for the national championship last night to conclude an impressive undefeated season, finished first in both polls, receiving every first place vote in both polls. Auburn, who put up a great fight, remained in second place despite their loss. Rose Bowl winner Michigan State Spartans finished third, the South Carolina Game Cocks, who did not play in a BCS bowl, finished fourth and the Missouri Tigers finished fifth after beating hte OSU Cowboys in a BCS Bowl.

The polls slightly differed with the seventh and eighth pick, as the AP voters chose Alabama seventh while the coaches chose Clemson seventh. The 17th ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys will be the first team to get to test Florida State next year as the defending national champions face them in Dallas Cowboys stadium to open 2014.

With the final polls of 2013 history, it is time to look ahead at the 2014 pre-season college football rankings, where OU sits in a seventh place average after their big win.
