OU quarterback Baker Mayfield wins Heisman


Baker Mayfield, the dynamic quarterback out of Oklahoma, Lamar Jackson, Louisville's Heisman winning quarterback from past year, and Stanford running back Bryce Love. Mayfield is the 7th player to ever be a finalist three times.

Former Oklahoma running back and 1978 Heisman Trophy victor Billy Sims helped lighten the mood, though, by bellowing "Boomer!" numerous times to celebrate Mayfield's win.

The Austin, Texas native has completed 262-of-369 passes this year for a career-high 4,340 yards and 41 touchdowns to just five interceptions.




Mayfield won in convincing fashion over Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson, last year's victor, and Stanford running back Bryce Love. He finished third nationally in passer rating in 2015, set the single-season FBS passer rating record a year ago and is on pace to break his own record this season. He won the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award, Maxwell Award, Davey O'Brien Award, AP Player of the Year and Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year. He also has 310 yards and five touchdowns as a runner. He leads the nation with a 71-percent completion percentage, a record-setting passing efficiency rating (203.8), yards per completion (16.6) and pass plays of more than 20 yards (75). If I'm an National Football League coach, I want him running my team.

Mayfield is no stranger to controversy, but you can't deny the impact he made on the field this season.

Mayfield led the Sooners to a 12-1 record and a spot in the college football playoff as they will take on Georgia in the Rose Bowl.
