NOTES:

1970 - Texas wins another National Championship (UPI still awarded it prior to the Bowl Games). Astroturf is installed in the Cotton Bowl prior to the 1970 game.

1972 - OU is again placed on probation for the 73-74 seasons (no bowls) and the 74-75 seasons (no TV) for recruiting violations while Fairbanks was head coach.

1974 - On probation, OU is not eligible for a bowl, but wins the AP National Championship. UPI (coach's poll) had recently adopted a policy of not ranking teams on probation.

1975 - OU wins another National Championship while on probation (the bowl ban had expired in 1974, the tv ban expired just prior to the New Year's Day bowls on Jan 1, 1976).

1976 - NCAA makes sweeping changes to recruiting rules. Because of the 1974 controversy, both the AP and UPI now wait until after the bowls to crown the National Champion.

1977 - Texas's Earl Campbell wins the Heisman Trophy.

1978 - OU's Billy Sims wins the Heisman Trophy.
