Baker Mayfield becomes Oklahoma's 6th Heisman Trophy victor

Baker Mayfield becomes Oklahoma's 6th Heisman Trophy victor”

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, a Heisman Trophy finalist, takes a question Saturday, Dec. 9, 2017, in NY.

For Baker Mayfield, the third time was the charm. Mayfield is the sixth recipient of the Heisman Trophy in OU history and the first since Sam Bradford in 2008. Mayfield's staggering stats (4,340 yards, 41 TD passes, just five picks) made him an easy choice.

Mayfield has 14,320 yards and 129 touchdowns though the air in his college career.

Did Houston Texans let Tom Savage re-enter game with concussion?
The third-year signal-caller is finally getting his first shot at helming a team, and so far he is passing with flying colors. However, Yates would later enter the game as Savage went to the locker room to be further evaluated for a concussion.

The Oklahoma Sooners senior quarterback took home the 83rd Heisman Trophy, beating out Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson and Stanford running back Bryce Love. He finished third nationally in passer rating in 2015, set the single-season FBS passer rating record past year and is on pace to break his own record this season.

He has been the toast of the college football awards scene lately also having won The Associated Press Player of the Year, Davey O'Brien Award, Walter Camp Player of the Year, and Maxwell Award. Mayfield's performance, however, continues to be otherworldly and, without question, Heisman-worthy. He's formed a ideal 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.

Mayfield still has some unfinished business to attend to this season.
