11/21/17 - Oklahoma redshirt senior QB Baker Mayfield (6-0, 214, 4.65, #6) predictably looked terrific against Kansas (20-for-30 for 257 yards, three touchdowns, no turnovers), but he created a stir for his antics on the sideline. Mayfield issued an apology after the game for his "unacceptable" actions. After Kansas refused a handshake during the pregame coin toss and landed a few questionable hits on the Heisman favorite, Mayfield retaliated with a few choice words and crotch grab that was captured by cameras. He also found himself in several back-and-forth shouting matches with the fans. Coach Lincoln Riley said that Mayfield "let his emotions get the best of him." Riley announced that Mayfield will not start against West Virginia this Saturday and won't be a captain. While his actions will be discussed by NFL teams when putting a draft grade on the quarterback, it is highly unlikely to change his pro evaluation. Mayfield needs to dial it back some, but his competitive make-up is what makes him such a productive and passionate player. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
11/20/17 - Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, the overwhelming favorite to win the Heisman Trophy, won't be a starter or a captain in his final home game. That is the fallout from Mayfield's sideline behavior in Saturday's victory at Kansas, when the senior yelled obscenities and made vulgar gestures toward the Jayhawks. Mayfield apologized after the game. Coach Lincoln Riley announced the discipline at his weekly Monday press conference. He added that Mayfield will play at some point when the No. 4 Sooners (10-1, 7-1 Big 12) host West Virginia (7-4, 5-3). "I think it's important for everybody here and across the country to keep in perspective ... that not just Baker, but all these players across the country are still young men. They're still learning. They're still in that phase that they are going to make mistakes," Riley said. "The important thing is you learn from them and grow from them. I think what we're setting forth here is going to provide Baker an opportunity do that. I think it's something that certainly will get his attention."
Mayfield's apology was his third this year. He also did so after an offseason arrest in Arkansas and for planting the OU flag at midfield after the Sooners' win at Ohio State early in the season. Mayfield has completed 233 of 329 passes for 3,816 yards, with 34 touchdowns and five interceptions. He ranks third in the country in passing yards per game (346.9). His national-best 199.3 passing efficiency rating is ahead of his FBS record mark of 196.4, set last season. Sophomore Kyler Murray, a transfer from Texas A&M who has completed 16 of 19 passes this season, is expected to start for Oklahoma. - The Sports Xchange
11/18/17 - Heisman Trophy hopeful Baker Mayfield passed for 257 yards and three touchdowns Saturday while battling breezy conditions as No. 3 Oklahoma toppled Kansas 41-3 in Memorial Stadium. Mayfield had difficulty getting his team moving as the Sooners (10-1, 7-1 Big 12), who came in with a nation-best 388.8 yards-passing average but led by just four points midway through the second quarter. The passing output was a season-low for Mayfield, who had been limited to fewer than 300 yards just two other times this season. He finished 20-for-30. The inspired Kansas defense, however, received no support from its offense, which was limited to 155 yards. Quarterback Carter Stanley passed for just 123 yards and the Jayhawks added just 32 yards on the ground.
The road victory was the 16th in a row for the Sooners, the nation's longest active streak. The Sooners outscored the Jayhawks 20-0 in the second half, but their string of eight consecutive games with 500 yards of offense was halted. Oklahoma started slowly, needing a fourth-down conversion for its only first-quarter score. Mayfield improvised on the play, averting three Kansas defenders in dumping off a pass to Anderson, who raced untouched for a 34-yard touchdown at the 6:40 mark. - The Sports Xchange
11/12/17 - Baker Mayfield continued making his Heisman Trophy case, Rodney Anderson kept up his string of big games and No. 5 Oklahoma kept its College Football Playoff hopes alive with a 38-20 win over No. 6 TCU on Saturday night at Gaylord Family -- Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. Mayfield threw for 333 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions. Anderson ran for 151 yards and two touchdowns and had five catches for 139 yards and two more scores for Oklahoma (9-1, 6-1 Big 12). The Horned Frogs (8-2, 5-2) entered the game allowing less than 70 yards rushing per game but the Sooners ran for 200 yards. No team had rushed for more than 142 yards against TCU this season coming into the game. In his last four games, Anderson has 590 yards rushing.
Oklahoma took control early, building a 38-14 halftime lead behind four Anderson scores -- three in the second quarter. It was only the second time in conference play that the Sooners had a game decided by more than eight points. It might not be the last time the teams meet this season. The Sooners are a game ahead of second-place Oklahoma State and TCU with two games to play. Oklahoma has beaten each of those teams this season. The Horned Frogs have the head-to-head win over the Cowboys. The top two teams in the league meet in the Big 12 championship game on Dec. 2 in Arlington, Texas. - The Sports Xchange
