Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield wins 2017 Heisman Trophy

Chill Lamar Jackson returns to NYC as relaxed Heisman finalist

Mayfield was honored over Stanford running back Bryce Love and last year's Heisman Trophy victor Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson.

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield won the Heisman Trophy on Saturday.

The brash, flag-planting Sooners star won a lopsided vote to become the sixth Oklahoma player to the win Heisman. Bryce Love was second and Lamar Jackson was third.

Mayfield is a former walk-on who has led the No. 2 Sooners to the College Football Playoff, where they will play No. 3 Georgia in the Rose Bowl on January 1. Former Ohio State running back Archie Griffin, who won the award in 1974 and 1975, remains the only two-time Heisman victor in the award's 83-year history.

Mayfield and the Sooners face Georgia in the Rose Bowl on January 1 in a CFP semifinal, with the victor to face Alabama or Clemson in the championship game on January 8.

For the second time in three seasons, Baker Mayfield has been honored as the Associated Press Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year, the AP announced on Friday. Once he became eligible at Oklahoma in 2015, he won the starting job over incumbent Trevor Knight.

Mayfield finished the 2017 season with 4,340 passing yards, 41 passing touchdowns and 4,650 total yards of offense, all of which rank fourth-best all-time among Heisman winners.

Mayfield helped the Sooners get a signature win over Oklahoma State in which he threw for almost 600 yards and five touchdowns. He was also punished by Sooners coach Lincoln Riley after making an obscene gesture toward Kansas players during a game in November.
