KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford is scheduled to have surgery on Sunday to repair torn ligaments in his left thumb.
He better heal quick - he might need that hand to lift the Heisman Trophy.
Bradford enhanced his chances of winning college football's most prestigious award Saturday night, throwing for a Big 12 Championship-record 384 yards and two touchdowns in a 62-21 rout over Missouri.
The sophomore already had the resume to be among the front-runners for the Heisman: gaudy numbers, Big 12 South title, season-defining moment. Now, he's got the Sooners headed to the national championship game, pulling off the kind of gritty performance that could sway undecided Heisman voters.
in the national title game for the fourth time nine years.
Not bad for a guy facing surgery in less than 24 hours.
Of course, it's no surprise.
Bradford was superb all season, throwing for 4,464 yards, 48 touchdowns with just six interceptions. He had the kind of signature play Heisman voters will remember last week against Oklahoma State, whirling through the air like a copter-on-a-stick toy while trying to score a touchdown - after injuring his hand.
Bradford capped the season with Saturday's gem, hitting 34 of 49 passes, helping the Sooners become the first team to score at least 60 points in five straight games.
With the Heisman ceremony less than a week away, Bradford has to like his chances.
