Bradford Postgame: 'Room to improve'

Sam Bradford has burst onto the national scene after his first two games in a Sooner uniform. The redshirt freshman has surpassed all expectations through three games as the OU signal caller and he continues to make this team an early favorite for the BCS Championship game in January.

Through three games Bradford has now completed 59-of-74 passes for 823 yards, 11 touchdowns and one interception. After his third straight impressive performance against Utah State on Saturday, Bradford spoke with members of the media.

Sam Bradford:

Q: Sam, can you talk about the running game today and the wealth of talent you have there?
Bradford:
Oh yeah, I mean those guys just did a wonderful job today. Our offensive line opened up big holes and we have five running backs, if you give them the grass they can take it the distance at any time. Those guys ran really hard today and just did a wonderful job today.

Q: Were you in the same type of rhythm or did it seem just as easy today as it did in the first game?
