Baker Mayfield becomes Oklahoma's 6th Heisman Trophy victor

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

On Saturday night, Mayfield took a enormous step toward another kind of history, the type that would have seemed so unlikely when he first walked on in Lubbock four years ago: He's become an all-time college football great.

The Oklahoma Sooners senior quarterback took home the 83rd Heisman Trophy, beating out Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson and Stanford running back Bryce Love.

Baker Mayfield won the Heisman Trophy on Saturday, and the Oklahoma quarterback was told to leave his offensive taunt in Kansas before entering the Heisman House with the help of a hilarious clip showcasing Mayfield's dance moves.

Mayfield also broke his own NCAA record for passing efficiency, which he set a year ago with a 203.8 rating this season.

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

Mayfield adds the Heisman to his trophy collection from this season; he also collected the Davey O'Brian Award for best quarterback and the Maxwell award for Player of the year. Two signature moments stamped his Heisman campaign: a 31-16 road win over Big Ten champion Ohio State in which he threw for 386 yards and three scores, and a wild 62-52 win over Oklahoma State. If I'm an National Football League coach, I want him running my team.

NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah has noted improvement in Mayfield as a pocket passer this season, and analyst Bucky Brooks has compared him to New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees.

Mayfield led the Sooners to a 12-1 record and a berth in the College Football Playoff as the No. 2 team in the nation.

Only USC and Notre Dame have had more Heisman winners than Oklahoma.
