Baker Mayfield wins the 2017 Heisman Trophy

Baker Mayfield wins the 2017 Heisman Trophy”

Mayfield won in convincing fashion over Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson, last year's victor, and Stanford running back Bryce Love. Mayfield is the sixth recipient of the Heisman Trophy in OU history and the first since Sam Bradford in 2008. I think the whole thing was blown up more than it needed to be, but things are amplified when you're the best player in college football, so I do understand that part of the deal. 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.

Baker Mayfield of Oklahoma speaks at the press conference for the 2017 Heisman Trophy Presentation on December 9, 2017 in New York City. He is the first senior to win the award since Troy Smith of Ohio State in 2006.

Mayfield totaled 4,340 yards of offense, 41 touchdowns while only throwing five interceptions in his final season at Oklahoma. He has also rushed for 310 yards and another five scores with no fumbles lost. Mayfield's performance, however, continues to be otherworldly and, without question, Heisman-worthy. He threw for 598 yards in a Bedlam rivalry win over Oklahoma State, and he was almost flawless (27 of 35 for 386 yards and three TDs) in a 31-16 road win at Ohio State. He's formed a flawless pairing with head coach Lincoln Riley, his offensive coordinator the past two years, as he established himself as a master of Oklahoma's wide-open offense with impressive arm strength, mobility and improvisational ability. The second-ranked Sooners meet No. 3 Georgia in the Rose Bowl on January 1.
