Need I say more? When I wrote about Sam Bradford at the end of last season, I was very optimistic, like others, about his future at Oklahoma. But it was too much to expect that he would win the Heisman Trophy in his sophomore year. But he did.
Bradford followed up last year’s remarkable season with even more impressive stats. Last year he set an NCAA record for touchdown passes by a freshman (36). This year he led the country in TD passes (48), which naturally shattered the record for TD passes for a combined freshman and sophomore year (84), which also set single season and career records for Oklahoma. Led by Bradford, the Sooners set an NCAA record for most points scored in a season (702), while accomplishing something that had never been done: scoring 60+ points in five consecutive games. The team finished the season 12-1 and champions of the Big 12.
And now there is just one game left to cap this magical season for the Oklahoma Sooners and their fans.
