NORMAN, OK -- Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops stands to receive a $250,000 bonus if he can lead the second-ranked Sooners to a win in the BCS championship game against Florida.

Stoops' contract calls for him to get $150,000 for leading the Sooners to the BCS title game, and an additional $100,000 for a win. Oklahoma (12-1) will face top-ranked Florida (12-1) in Miami on Jan. 8 for the BCS championship.

Stoops has already earned an $80,000 bonus for winning the Big 12 title and another $30,000 for being named the conference's coach of the year. He shared that honor with Texas Tech's Mike Leach. His contract also calls for a $75,000 bonus if the Sooners finish in the top 10 in the BCS.

Stoops will also collect a $3 million bonus at the end of the year for finishing 10 seasons with Oklahoma.
