NORMAN — Welcome back, Sam Bradford.

After sitting the last five weeks with a shoulder injury, Bradford finally returned to the field Saturday to lead the Sooners to a 33-7 victory over Baylor at Owen Field.

Oklahoma's Heisman quarterback looked like his old self, completing 27 of 49 passes for 389 yards and a touchdown as the Sooners improved to 3-2.

"It's just exciting to be back," he said.

Bradford suffered a third-degree separation in his throwing shoulder in the opener, which caused him to miss the rest of the non-conference schedule.

But Saturday, the injury didn't appear to hinder his shoulder at all.

The 49 attempts tied for the second-most of his career, and the 389 passing yards tied for the eighth-most in school history.

"I felt like my arm responded great," he said. "Felt good out there."
