09/22/15 - The numbers Baker Mayfield is putting up as Oklahoma's new quarterback has made believers of the Sooner faithful. Mayfield turned in the top passing performance of the week when he completed 32 of 38 passes for 487 yards and four touchdowns in a 52-38 victory over Tulsa on Saturday. He's hitting on 67.3 percent of his passes since winning the starter's job over incumbent Trevor Knight. He's thrown 10 touchdowns and been intercepted just twice in 110 attempts. Among Big 12 quarterbacks, only Baylor's Seth Russell is throwing for more than Mayfield's 354 yards a game. The guy can run, too. He rushed for 85 yards and two TDs against Tulsa, giving him a school-record 572 yards of total offense. The transfer from Texas Tech has run for at least one touchdown and passed for at least three in each of his three games at Oklahoma. - AP Sports
09/21/15 - SEPT 21 BIG 12 CO-OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma, QB, Jr, Austin, Texas,...Baker Mayfield set a school single-game record for total offense with 572 yards, the most by an FBS player this season, in No. 17/16 Oklahoma’s 52-38 win over Tulsa. He directed an OU attack that racked up 773 yards of total offense, the program's most since 1988 and its fourth-highest ever. Mayfield was 32-of-38 for a career-high 487 yards passing (second-highest in FBS this season) and rushed for a career-high 85 yards on 13 carries. The junior tied a school record with six total touchdowns, tied a personal career high with four passing TDs and set a career high with two rushing scores.
One of his rushing touchdowns went for 39 yards, the longest carry by a Sooner this year. According to ESPN Stats and Information, Mayfield became the first FBS player since at least 2000 with at least three passing TDs and at least one rushing TD in each of his team's first three games of a season. He ranks first among FBS players in points responsible for (84), second in total offense per game (400.3), second in passing TDs (10), fifth in passing yards (1,062) and sixth in passing yards per game (354.0). - Big 12 Football
09/20/15 - Baker Mayfield sure knows how to make an impression. The quarterback in his third start for No. 16 Oklahoma set a school record with 572 total yards, threw four touchdown passes and ran for two more in powering the Sooners over Tulsa 52-38 on Saturday in a game that totaled 1,376 yards of offense. Mayfield, a transfer from Texas Tech who walked on at Oklahoma and sat out last year, had four TDs in an overtime win against Tennessee a week ago. He followed that up by completing 32 of 38 passes for 487 yards and carrying 13 times for 85 yards against Tulsa.
"Man, he was lighting it up, extending plays," Oklahoma receiver Sterling Shepard said. "You just kind of have to run with him. He'll find you down the field. He's always looking to pass first, but if he has to take it on the ground, he will do it, and you guys got to see a little bit of that today, too." Mayfield's total yards topped the 554-yard record set by Landry Jones against West Virginia in 2012. His passing yardage total was fourth highest in school history. "It's pretty humbling, especially knowing who has come through here," he said. "It's pretty special to me. But we had so much more on the table. Who knows what we could have done if we had just executed the offense better." Samaje Perine ran for 152 yards and a touchdown, Shepard caught eight passes for 144 yards and Mark Andrews caught two TD passes for the Sooners (3-0). - AP Sports
09/13/15 - OKLAHOMA (2-0, 0-0)...Game: Oklahoma 31, Tennessee 24 (2OT). Oklahoma allowed Tennessee to go up 17-0 in the first 18 minutes and looked out of it until QB Baker Mayfield went 11-of-14 passing for 103 yards, with three touchdowns and a touchdown run in the fourth quarter and overtime. The OT was forced after Mayfield threw a 5-yard TD pass to WR Sterling Shepard with 40 seconds left. The Volunteers struck first in overtime, but the Sooners responded with two TDs and a game-ending interception by CB Zack Sanchez. Takeaway: The crowd of 102,455 was the largest to ever watch Oklahoma play football, yet few of them were in Neyland Stadium to root on the Sooners. A comment earlier in the week by Oklahoma LB Eric Striker only served to incite the crowd, which was wild the entire game before the Sooners' late rally, and overtime heroics, finally silenced the sellout. Afterward, Striker demonstratively celebrated in front of a group of Oklahoma fans and said that Tennessee coach Butch Jones called him out for his pre-game remarks. "Hey Eric, you're a helluva player, but have some damn class," Striker said Jones told him. After beating an SEC opponent for the third time in as many years, beginning with an upset of Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, the Sooners were in no mood to add to any hype for the SEC.
