NORMAN — Oklahoma's Sam Bradford showed that he had shaken off the concussion he suffered last week by throwing four touchdown passes, as the Sooner quarterback led Oklahoma to a 49-17 rout of Oklahoma State on Saturday.
OU (10-2) moves on to play the winner of Saturday night's Missouri/Kansas game in the Big 12 championship game next Saturday in San Antonio. Bradford was questionable for the contest up until Thursday, when he was given the OK to play.
Records and injuriesOn his way to the win against the Cowboys, Bradford set an NCAA record with his 30th touchdown pass, best ever for a freshman. One Sooner who didn't make it to the game because of injury was running back DeMarco Murray. Allen Patrick filled in and finished with a solid day — a career-best 202 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Bradford finished with 150 yards on 11-for-15 passing with one interception, which set up one of the Cowboys' two touchdowns on the day. OSU quarterback Zac Robinson, who has been a spark for the Cowboys this season and had already set an OSU record for total offense, had his worst game as a starter. Robinson completed eight of 20 passes for 105 yards.
