NORMAN, Oklahoma -- The Sooners are headed to Kansas City this Saturday to face Missouri in the Big 12 Championship game.

OU beat the rival Texas for a chance at the title, and could go on to play for the National Championship against the winner of the Southeastern Conference.

Head Coach Bob Stoops discussed the upcoming game, including quarterback Bradford's hand injury, playing the title game on the road, and the challenge of Tiger running game.

Bradford also fielded questions about Heisman talk and how he intends on leading his team in Kansas City.
