Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield wins Davey O'Brien Award

Baker Mayfield claims Davey O'Brien Award

And of course, Mayfield is considered the heavy favorite to win the Heisman Trophy, which will be announced Saturday night in NY.

Mayfield is the third Oklahoma quarterback to claim the Davey O'Brien Award.

Love won the Doak Walker Award, which is given to the best running back in college football. Love (83 points) and Jackson (39 points) each received two first-place votes and Penn State running Saquon Barkley received a first-place vote and came in fourth.

Mayfield became the fourth Sooner to win the award, which was first issued in 1998.

Oklahoma senior QB Baker Mayfield said that he will not be planting the Sooners' flag on the field if they beat Georgia in the Rose Bowl. Oklahoma has had three previous winners: quarterback Josh Heupel in 2001, quarterback Jason White in 2003 and quarterback Sam Bradford in 2008. "I'm on this awards trip right now with a lot of great players from OU and other schools, and every one of them deserves to be recognized". Never again, though. When he was asked about it by the media on Wednesday, Mayfield smiled and said, "I don't think I'll be doing that". "I am so appreciative of Mr. Hornung and the Louisville Sports Commission for selecting me for this very special honor". He's averaging 8.3 yards per carry, has 17 touchdowns and set the FBS record with 12 runs of at least 50 yards this season.

Baker won the Maxwell Award as the national player of the year and the Davey O'Brien Award, which goes to the country's top quarterback, to highlight the College Football Awards Show.

Some of the nation's top college football players were honored Thursday night, as the Home Depot College Football Awards ceremony was held at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta.

He has 129 career touchdown passes and 14,320 yards.
