09/17/17 - Oklahoma needed something to go right defensively. Tulane's spread option was carving up the No. 2 Sooners on the ground for most of the game's first 20 minutes Saturday night, but for the second consecutive week, sophomore cornerback Parnell Motley came up with a game-changing play. Motley's 77-yard interception return for a touchdown turned the tide from what was a tight game and Oklahoma blew the game open from there to win 56-14 and stay undefeated. A week earlier against Ohio State, it was Motley's interception that helped the Sooners put that game away. After seeing virtually no time on defense as a freshman, Motley is becoming Oklahoma's defensive playmaker. "The ball's going to find its way into the guy's hands," Sooners linebacker Ogbonnia Okoronkwo said. "He's a playmaker."
That play put the Sooners up for the first time in the game and after the Green Wave had scored on their first two drives, they didn't score again the rest of the way. "We didn't respond very well," Tulane coach Willie Fritz said. "As a team, they score so many darn points and they're so potent with their receivers, running backs and obviously you have a potential Heisman Trophy winner at quarterback. We didn't respond very well." While Motley came up with the big play defensively, that Heisman contender came up big once again. Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield had a big game once again, throwing for 331 yards and four touchdowns to continue a blistering start to the season. Through three games, Mayfield is 63 of 82 for 1,046 yards and 10 touchdowns with no interceptions. - The Sports Xchange
09/13/17 - WEEK 2 STOCK REPORT: Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma, rSR. (6-0, 218, 4.65, #6)...After the Sooners were defeated handedly by the Buckeyes last year, Oklahoma marched into Columbus last Saturday and defeated a very talented Ohio State squad. Urban Meyer's squad was out-played and out-coached, but the most noticeable difference was one team had a playmaker at quarterback, the other team didn't. Undersized quarterbacks with average arm strength usually don't last long in the NFL, at least as a starter, but Mayfield has NFL scouts highly intrigued due to his competitive edge and improvisation skills. He makes up for his lack of elite physical traits with his ability to play off-script, make quick decisions and deliver with different arm angles to each level of the field. Mayfield doesn't have the same type of arm as Russell Wilson, but the Jeff Garcia comparisons have merit due to his fearless demeanor and willingness to give his targets a chance. He won't be for every NFL team or coach, but in a scheme heavily influenced by west coast principles, Mayfield could flourish, which is why he is a candidate to be the first senior quarterback drafted next April. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
09/11/17 - SEPT 11 BIG 12 OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: QB Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma...For the second time to start the 2017 season, Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield has been named Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week. The conference announced the honor Monday morning. Mayfield led the Sooners to a 31-16 win at No. 2 Ohio State on Saturday, a game that marked the Buckeyes' largest margin of defeat at home since 1999. It was also just OU's second road victory over a top-two AP opponent in non-conference play. The other came in 1963 in Bud Wilkinson's last year as Sooners head coach.
The redshirt senior quarterback completed 27 of 35 pass attempts, including each of his final 14, for 386 yards and three touchdowns without an interception. OU's 386 passing yards were the most allowed by Ohio State at home since 1985 and marked Mayfield's career high against an AP top-25 opponent. Mayfield directed OU to a 490-yard night, the most yards surrendered by Ohio State in 34 games and most allowed in Columbus in five seasons. He led the Sooners into OSU territory on nine of the 10 possessions that began on OU's side of the field. With Oklahoma's win, Mayfield improved to 10-0 at OU in true road games. In those contests, he has completed 218-of-307 passes (71 percent) for 3,004 yards and 35 touchdowns against five interceptions for an efficiency rating of 187.6. - Oklahoma Football
09/11/17 - Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield has apologized for his postgame flag celebration following the Sooners' victory at Ohio State. After Saturday night's 31-16 win, Mayfield ran around the field at Ohio Stadium with a crimson OU flag, then took it to the "O'' at midfield and tried to stick it in the ground as his teammates celebrated around him. Mayfield said Monday that he didn't mean any disrespect. He said he should have saved his celebration for the locker room, adding that he would be upset if someone did that on Oklahoma's home field. Mayfield threw for 386 yards and three touchdowns as No. 5 Oklahoma rallied to knock off the second-ranked Buckeyes. The Sooners have since moved up to No. 2 in The Associated Press college football poll. - AP College Football
09/11/17 - QB Baker Mayfield has been fantastic through two weeks, throwing for 715 yards and six touchdowns with no interceptions. Mayfield completed passes to nine different receivers against Ohio State after hitting 10 the week before.
