Bradford Gets the Nod

NORMAN, Okla. – Sam Bradford, winner of the 2008 Heisman Trophy, will start at quarterback for Oklahoma in the Sooners' game against Baylor, Saturday.

The junior has been out since the season opener (Sept. 5) when he suffered a sprained shoulder joint.

"Sam has had a great week of practice and is ready to play," said OU Head Coach Bob Stoops after a morning meeting with Bradford. "We're obviously excited to have him back.

"We remain very pleased with the work Landry Jones did in replacing Sam and our entire program has a lot of confidence in his ability," Stoops added.

Oklahoma and Baylor play Saturday at 2:30 p.m., in Norman.
