The 2012 Oklahoma Sooners football team represented the University of Oklahoma in the 2012 college football season, the 118th season of Sooner football. The team was led by two-time Walter Camp Coach of the Year Award winner, Bob Stoops, in his 14th season as the OU head coach, and played their home games at Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman, Oklahoma. They were a charter member of the Big 12 Conference.

Conference play began with an upset loss at home to Kansas State on September 22nd and concluded with a win against TCU in Fort Worth, Texas on December 1st. The Sooners were also the first team since Florida in 1993 to play against the top 3 Heisman vote-getters in the same season.

The Sooners finished the regular season with a 10–2 record overall (8–1 in the Big 12), and shared the Big 12 Conference Championship with Kansas State to win their 8th Big 12 title and their 44th conference title overall.
