Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford will return from a sprained right shoulder and start for No. 19 Oklahoma today against Baylor.

Bradford missed the Sooners' last three games after spraining a joint in his throwing shoulder in a loss to Brigham Young.

Coach Bob Stoops said Friday that the quarterback has recovered enough to play in the team's Big 12 opener.

Nevada wins

Colin Kaepernick passed for three touchdowns and ran for two more, including a 67-yarder, to help Nevada beat Louisiana Tech, 37-14, at Reno, for Coach Chris Ault's 200th career victory.

Kaepernick finished with 166 yards passing and 89 yards rushing, and Vai Taua added 107 yards on the ground for Nevada (2-3, 1-0 Western Athletic Conference) in its fifth straight victory against the Bulldogs (2-3, 1-1).

Punter is shot

Peter Wilkes, a walk-on punter at Southern Mississippi, is in critical condition at a Memphis, Tenn., hospital after being shot at his home in Union City, Tenn. Regional Medical Center officials said that Wilkes was being treated in a critical care unit.

Union City Assistant Police Chief Perry Barfield said the case is under investigation as an accident or self-inflicted gunshot wound.
