The other finalists announced Monday are Florida defensive coordinator Charlie Strong, Utah defensive coordinator Gary Andersen, Texas Christian defensive coordinator Dick Bumpas and Ball State offensive coordinator Stan Parrish.
The Broyles Award is named for Arkansas athletic director Frank Broyles. He was the Razorbacks' football coach, and more than 25 of his assistants became head coaches. They include Joe Gibbs, Jimmy Johnson, Johnny Majors and Jackie Sherrill.
Wilson's offense is scoring 53 points per game, easily the best mark in the nation. Oklahoma has scored over 60 points in four straight games.
The Broyles Award winner will be announced Dec. 9 in Little Rock. Ohio State defensive coordinator Jim Heacock won it last year.
