Does Sam Bradford deserve to be first-team All-Big 12?

Why not?

Bradford leads the nation again in passing efficiency and likely next week will break the national freshman record for touchdown passes in a season.

Bradford doesn't have as many yards as Kansas' Todd Reesing or Missouri's Chase Daniel. But he has more touchdowns (28) and a better completion percentage (70.1 percent) than both.

But Bradford has two strikes against him with the media. He's just a freshman. And Reesing and Daniel probably have been more integral to the success of their teams, making both of them the favorites to earn All-Big 12 honors.

Don't worry, though. If Bradford continues to play this well, he'll earn many postseason honors in his career, including perhaps a shot at the Heisman Trophy.

Much needs to happen for the Sooners not to win the South.

More than likely, if OU at least splits the next two games with Texas Tech and Oklahoma State, the Sooners should win the division and advance to the Big 12 championship.

The Sooners hold a tiebreaker over two-loss Texas, meaning one-loss OU would have to lose out and the Longhorns would have to win their last remaining game in two weeks against Texas A&M for Texas to win the South.
