The 1915 Oklahoma Sooners football team represented the University of Oklahoma in the 1915 college football season. In their 11th year under head coach Bennie Owen, the Sooners compiled a 10–0 record (3–0 against conference opponents), and outscored their opponents by a combined total of 370 to 54.[1][2] This was the first season that the Sooners participated in the Southwest Conference.
