Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield wins Heisman

Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield wins Heisman

Senior quarterback Baker Mayfield won the Maxwell Award Thursday evening, which is given to the best player in the nation. Louisville QB Lamar Jackson, last year's Heisman victor, and Stanford RB Bryce Love trailed Mayfield in the balloting.

Mayfield becomes the sixth Sooner to ever win the award joining Sam Bradford (2008), Jason White (2003), Billy Sims (1978), Steve Owens (1969), and Billy Vessels (1952). His 15 votes were fourth-most - behind Mayfield, Love and Jackson - and the Nittany Lions ball-carrier also received the fourth-most second-place votes and third-most third-place votes.

If Mayfield, who has also rushed for 310 yards and five touchdowns, can lead Oklahoma to a national championship, he'd be the 15th player to win both the Heisman and a national championship in the same season. 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.
