Draft Scout Baker Mayfield News
11/24/15 - 2015 BURLSWORTH TROPHY FINALIST: Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, Penn State defensive end Cal Nassib and Washington State quarterback Luke Falk are the finalists for the Burlsworth Trophy, given to the most outstanding college football player to begin his career as a walk-on. Mayfield walked on at Texas Tech before transferring to Oklahoma and is now a Heisman Trophy contender for the fifth-ranked Sooners. The Burlsworth Trophy honors the late Brandon Burlsworth, a walk-on at Arkansas who became a three-year starting offensive lineman. He was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in 1999, but was killed in a car accident 11 days later. A film about Burlsworth called "Greater" will be released Jan. 22. - AP Sports
11/23/15 - Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield will do some light work at practice Monday, and hopes to play in Saturday's pivotal game against Oklahoma State after he was sidelined following a blow to the head in a win over TCU. Coach Bob Stoops says Monday that the Heisman hopeful checked out well the past two days, and plans called for him to do light work at practice. Mayfield was shaken up by a helmet-to-helmet hit from TCU linebacker Ty Summers, who was ejected for targeting. The hit came early in the first half. Mayfield missed the second half of Saturday's win. Mayfield has completed 69 percent of his passes, with 32 touchdowns and five interceptions. He also has 343 yards rushing and six TDs. The fifth-ranked Sooners (10-1, 7-1 Big 12) can clinch the Big 12 conference title with a victory over No. 9 Oklahoma State (10-1, 7-1). - AP Sports
11/08/15 - Baker Mayfield and the Oklahoma Sooners pushed aside one last overmatched opponent. Mayfield completed 23 of 31 passes for 342 yards and three touchdowns and ran for a score to help the No. 14 Sooners beat Iowa State 52-16. Samaje Perine ran for 95 yards and a touchdown on 13 rushes, and Joe Mixon rushed for 88 yards and a touchdown on eight carries for Oklahoma (8-1, 5-1 Big 12, No. 15 CFP). The Sooners have won four straight, outscoring their opponents 232-50. They have surpassed 50 points in four consecutive games for the first time since 2008.
Now, the Sooners can turn their attention to their difficult stretch run in which they face each of the Big 12's top three teams. They are at No. 2 Baylor next week, take on No. 5 TCU on Nov. 21, and finish at No. 12 Oklahoma State Nov. 28. "We've been in a big atmospheres and big games," offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley said. "The guys have a good trust we don't need to do anything special. The whole team has bought in. ... If we keep winning, the games will get more important." - AP Sports
11/03/15 - With three tough games looming at the end of its schedule, No. 14 Oklahoma had no trouble getting up for Saturday's game against winless Kansas. Baker Mayfield completed 27 of 32 passes for 383 yards and four touchdowns and Oklahoma beat Kansas 62-7. It was evident quickly that the Sooners would have little trouble with the Jayhawks, but they stayed sharp in this blowout. Oklahoma will face No. 2 Baylor, No. 5 TCU and No. 12 Oklahoma State in the last three weeks of November. "We know what's coming," Mayfield said. "That's why we're preparing. We knew from the beginning our hardest three games were at the end of the year. That's no surprise. Obviously you have to win one week at a time with Big 12 play, but we knew that our little gauntlet at the end was the most important." Sterling Shepard had 183 yards receiving and a touchdown on 11 catches for the Sooners (7-1, 4-1 Big 12). Samaje Perine added 90 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 11 carries. - AP Sports
10/26/15 - Baker Mayfield felt the emotion and the pressure. For the first time, Oklahoma's quarterback was facing Texas Tech, the school he left on bad terms two years earlier. Samaje Perine and Joe Mixon took the heat for him. They combined for 355 yards and six rushing touchdowns to help the 17th-ranked Sooners roll past the Red Raiders 63-27 on Saturday. Mayfield left Tech after his freshman season in 2013 and had to sit out last year because the school blocked him from playing right away. He stayed calm and completed 15 of 22 passes for 212 yards and two touchdowns. "Obviously football's an emotional game, and I used to attend there, it's just a fact," he said. "So there was little bit coming into it, but I had to look at it like a normal game. That's the focus we came into it with, and that's how we had to execute."
Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops talked to Mayfield about his approach before the game. "The message was, 'When you've played really well, have the same demeanor. This is no different, you can't just all of the sudden come out and play differently because of who it is. I don't think that works for you.' He understood that. He just had to be in the same mindset he's been in and operate in the same way. And he trusted that." Perine hammered out 201 yards and four touchdowns, while Mixon ran for 154 yards and two more scores. The Sooners (6-1, 3-1 Big 12) turned their Air Raid into the ground and pound, rumbling for 405 yards on 57 carries. - AP Sports
