Baker Mayfield becomes first senior to win Heisman in 11 years
Dec 12, 2017, 18:02
Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield accepted the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night with a gracious and emotional speech at the PlayStation Theater in New York City. Mayfield captured 732 first-place votes - 657 more than second-place finisher Bryce Love - and he received 86 percent of the possible points on the three-person ballots, the third-highest percentage in history behind Troy Smith and Marcus Mariota. He finished third nationally in passer rating in 2015, set the single-season FBS passer rating record previous year and is on pace to break his own record this season.
Mayfield has passed for 4,340 yards this season with 41 touchdowns and only five interceptions. He also ran for 310 yards and five more touchdowns on the ground.
Mayfield, who finished third in the Heisman voting a year ago, leads the nation in completion percentage (.710), yards per pass attempt (11.8), yards per completion (16.6) and pass of plays of 20-plus yards (75). If I'm an National Football League coach, I want him running my team.
