07/13/17 - Oklahoma is the preseason favorite to win another Big 12 title after coach Bob Stoops' surprise retirement. The Sooners, who last season won their record 10th Big 12 title under Stoops, got 19 of 32 first-place votes in the preseason media poll released Thursday in advance of the league's media days next week. Lincoln Riley became the youngest FBS head coach when the 33-year-old offensive coordinator was promoted after Stoops stepped down last month. The Sooners have senior quarterback Baker Mayfield, the Heisman Trophy finalist who was named the Big 12 preseason offensive player of the year. Oklahoma State got 12 first-place votes, while Kansas State was picked third with the remaining top ballot. Texas and TCU completed the top half of the poll, followed by West Virginia, Baylor, Texas Tech, Iowa State and Kansas. - AP College Football

06/20/17 - Oklahoma QB Mayfield avoids suspension...Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield will not be suspended for any games during the upcoming season despite his recent drunk-driving arrest. The university announced the sanctions for the Heisman Trophy finalist on Thursday and he will be required to complete 35 hours of community service and participate in an alcohol-education course before the fall semester. The community service will include work with law enforcement. Mayfield was arrested in Fayetteville, Ark., and charged with public intoxication, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. He tried to flee the scene and was tackled by a police officer. He pleaded not guilty in April. "As I stated earlier, I could not be more disappointed in my actions and the embarrassment they caused for my university and team," Mayfield said in a statement released by Oklahoma. "I am anxious to fulfill the responsibilities that have been set and am continuing to dedicate myself to the high standard that everyone rightfully expects from someone in my position."
New Sooners coach Lincoln Riley feels the lesson was learned. "Baker has expressed regret for his actions and backed up his apology by being a model leader in our program," Riley said in a statement. "He has learned from his mistake and will continue to grow from it. The coaching staff and the team has every confidence in him going forward." Riley recently replaced Bob Stoops as coach. Mayfield finished third in the Heisman balloting last season after passing for 3,965 yards, 40 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson won the award and Clemson signal caller Deshaun Watson was second. Oklahoma opens the season on Sept. 2 against Texas-El Paso. - The Sports Xchange
06/20/17 - Oklahoma QB Mayfield pleads guilty to public intoxication...Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of public intoxication, disorderly conduct and fleeing following his February arrest, the prosecutor's office in Fayetteville, Ark., announced Monday. Mayfield, 22, accepted a plea deal last Wednesday in Fayetteville District Court but details were not released until Monday. Mayfield was fined $100 for each charge of public intoxication, disorderly conduct and fleeing. In addition, he must pay $160 in court costs and $483.20 in restitution. Prosecutors dropped a resisting arrest charge against him. Mayfield, a 2016 Heisman Trophy finalist, was arrested on Feb. 25 in Fayetteville. Dash cam footage released in March showed police tackling him into a wall after he tried to run from the scene.
Last week, new Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley announced Mayfield would be disciplined for the arrest internally, which included 35 hours of community service and undergoing university alcohol education. Mayfield will not miss any playing time. Riley, who recently replaced Bob Stoops as coach, feels the lesson was learned by Mayfield. "Baker has expressed regret for his actions and backed up his apology by being a model leader in our program," Riley said last week in a statement. "He has learned from his mistake and will continue to grow from it. The coaching staff and the team has every confidence in him going forward." - The Sports Xchange
