Mayfield Becomes Sooners' Sixth Heisman Winner

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield won the Heisman Trophy on Saturday. With the Sooners, he has become a three-year starter and one of the most productive passers in college football history.

Stanford running back Bryce Love was the runner-up, making it five second-place finishes for the Cardinal since 2009. Love had 75 first-place votes and 1,300 points and Jackson received 47 and 793.

Mayfield has already won the Davey O'Brien Award and the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award. That shot - which begins in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day against No. 3 Georgia - will come in less than a month's time, but for now, Mayfield and Oklahoma fans can enjoy the fact that the Heisman has returned to Norman for the first time since 2008.

Mayfield finished fourth in the Heisman voting two years ago and third last year.

I'm terribly sorry, and I hate to tell you this, but if you laughed even once at this, you and I can not be friends. He specifically helped out with preparations for the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Concert.

He became a household name on September 9 when he planted the OU flag on Ohio State's midfield logo after the Sooners won 31-16 in Columbus.

The award is the culmination of Mayfield's wild an inexplicable career. He's also rushed for 310 yards and five touchdowns. He was averaging over 10 yards per carry at one point, but he just didn't quite have the resume of Mayfield.

Instead, he walked-on at Texas Tech and started eight games as a freshman.

Mayfield was also named as the AP Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year in 2015. But when the Red Raiders still didn't put Mayfield on scholarship after the first season, he transferred to Oklahoma - and after sitting out a season, his career took off. To best highlight how effective Mayfield was hurling the ball from inside or outside the pocket this year, all anyone needs to do is look back to the annual Bedlam Game against Oklahoma State. Jayhawks captains refused to shake his hand during the pregame coin flip.

Quick takes on Army's 14-13 win over Navy
The Army Black Knights wore white uniforms honoring the 10th Mountain Division and they seemed to merge into the snowy field. For years, Army players and coaches were forced to answer the question regarding when the losing streak to Navy would end.

Well, coming into Saturday night, we knew that Mayfield would attain that Heisman dream he's had most of his life, and not even a returning Jackson was going to stop him. He responded by screaming profanities and making a lewd gesture that television cameras caught.

The first came after he was arrested in Fayetteville, Arkansas, in February for public intoxication, disorderly conduct and fleeing. From that incident, Mayfield pled guilty, and in exchange for the plea, only had to pay fine and restitution. Mayfield said before that early season showdown that the Buckeyes had irked him by celebrating on the Sooners' field in 2016.

He's the sixth Oklahoma player to win the award, joining Billy Vessels, Steve Owens, Billy Sims, Jason White and Sam Bradford.
