Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield has been the frontrunner for the Heisman Award for most of the season. Over the last month or so, he’s been a near certainty. Following the Sooners’ win last week in the Big 12 Championship Game, there was no longer an ounce of doubt.
This, his third trip as a Heisman finalist, culminated with Mayfield being the first walk-on player to win the award. Mayfield and his Sooners are now for the college football playoffs.
