Oklahoma senior QB Baker Mayfield (punishment) will not start Saturday against West Virginia, but he will play.

This according to HC Lincoln Riley, who is punishing Mayfield for his antics against Kansas on Saturday. After KU players snubbed Mayfield for a pre-game handshake, he went on to taunt the Jayhawk sidelines during the game with cursing and crotch grabs. At one point, he turned to Kansas fans behind OU's bench and screamed: "You have one win! Go cheer on basketball!" As part of his punishment, Riley has also stripped Mayfield of his captaincy for Saturday's game against the Mountaineers.

Yahoo's Pete Thamel spoke to one anonymous NFL scout who called Oklahoma senior QB Baker Mayfield's antics "a big deal."

To be clear, the scout said the antics on their own will not drop Mayfield's evaluation, but it will force evaluators to question Mayfield's behavior when combined with an off-field arrest. "‘Who do you want to be, Drew Brees or Johnny Manziel?’ It’s a fine line," the scout said. Mayfield will be offered to attend the Senior Bowl in January.

Oklahoma beat writer Berry Tramel believes the school should suspend senior QB Baker Mayfield against West Virginia for his actions and gestures during last Saturday's contest against Kansas.

"Embarrassed himself, embarrassed his team, embarrassed his school, embarrassed his adopted state," Tramel writes. This is the second time Mayfield has released a public apology, with the first coming after he planted the school's flag on the opponents' field. Mayfield is the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy.

Oklahoma senior QB Baker Mayfield went 20-for-30 and threw for 257 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 41-3 victory over Kansas.

During the coin toss before the game, Mayfield tried to shake hands with Kansas captains Daniel Wise, Dorance Armstrong Jr. and Joe Dineen Jr. They stared back and didn't offer their hands. Thusly disrespected, Mayfield went out and shredded the Jayhawks. He was demonstrative throughout, not forgetting the snub, grabbing his crotch while cursing the Kansas bench. At one point, he turned to Kansas fans behind OU's bench and screamed: "You have one win! Go cheer on basketball!" This was Mayfield's lowest passing yardage total of the season. That's likely no consolation for Kansas' humbled defense.

NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah believes Oklahoma senior QB Baker Mayfield is worthy of being selected in the first round.

The reasons? Jeremiah cites Mayfield's energy around teammates, strong build despite his lack of height, arm strength and competitiveness. There are areas to clean up, but Jeremiah seems very optimistic. We are excited to watch Mayfield through the process, including a possible College Football Playoff run and Senior Bowl and NFL Combine.

Oklahoma senior QB Baker Mayfield completed 18-of-27 passes for 333 yards and three scores in a 38-20 victory over TCU on Saturday.

Mayfield (6'1/209) also added 50 yards rushing on 11 carries. All of Oklahoma's scoring was done in the first half, which can be a bad thing. Not when you put up 38 points in that half, however. He found star running back Rodney Anderson for two of his scores, and he opened the scoring with a 13-yard strike to Grant Calcaterra. This wasn't his best effort, but it doesn't do anything to remove him from the Heisman discussion. On the contrary, in fact. He'll put up insane numbers barring something unexpected next week against Kansas.

An NFL executive who spoke with Yahoo Sports' Pete Thamel said of Oklahoma senior QB Baker Mayfield, "He'll change the culture in your building."

The exec referred to Mayfield as a complete beast, though he does have his questions about the senior's size (6'1/209) and lack of an outright howitzer of an arm could cause NFL teams to try to typecast him. While the general consensus on Mayfield is that he is going to be a Day 2 selection, we are not ruling Mayfield out as a potential Day 1 pick.

Oklahoma senior Baker Mayfield is now NFL Media's No. 1 ranked QB in college football.

Once again, the list is comprised of five of NFL Media's draft experts' top 10 lists. "Mayfield is pulling skeptics onboard his bandwagon each week," the group writes. Mayfield has been doing this for years. Look back at his game against Tennessee, where he evaded countless sacks in the backfield to lead the Sooners to a comeback win. He is #fun.

Oklahoma senior QB Baker Mayfield landed in the first round of Albert Breer's midseason mock draft, at No. 27 to the Saints.

"I think he could go Top 15... Or he could go in the third round," Breer writes, stating evaluations of Mayfield are diverse. We know Mayfield will be in the 2018 NFL Draft, something we can't say about other quarterbacks, and we know his unusual size and style will generate a wide range of opinions. Hopefully he attends the Senior Bowl.

This comes on the heels of Mayfield converting 598 passing yards and five touchdown throws on Saturday against Oklahoma State. Mayfield has been doubted his entire college career and frequently considered just a college style quarterback. Yet he continues to make play after play and will be exciting to follow during the draft process.

Oklahoma senior QB Baker Mayfield was named the Walter Camp Offensive National FBS Player Of The Week after his performance against Oklahoma State on Saturday.

No shock here. Mayfield was ridiculous, throwing for 598 yards and five touchdowns and adding a rushing touchdown as well. There's a real possibility that this performance puts the 6-foot, 200-pound quarterback at the top of the Heisman race, if he wasn't there already. Mayfield and the Sooners have another must-win game next week against TCU.
Nov 5 - 1:05 PM

Oklahoma senior QB Baker Mayfield completed 24-of-36 passes for 598 yards with five touchdowns and two interceptions in a 62-52 victory over Oklahoma State on Saturday.

Wow. What a football game, assuming you don't mind a lack of defense from both sides. Mayfield was sensational again, and also added a rushing touchdown for good measure. His go-to receiver was Marquise Brown on this one, and he found him for two scores and 265 yards of receiving. He found three other receivers for scores in this one, and outside of a pick in the red zone that nearly cost the Sooners, he made the right decision and showed off his impressive ability to throw in the pocket or on the run. It's time to take Mayfield more seriously as a Heisman Trophy candidate, if you weren't already. Oklahoma has another big game next week against TCU.

NFL.com Draft Analyst Chad Reuter thinks that Oklahoma senior QB Baker Mayfield could be a fit for the New Orleans Saints in the NFL Draft.

This would be fascinating. Keep in mind that Drew Brees is not only going to turn 39-years-old in January, he's also a free agent at the end of the season. So even if the Saints bring Brees back, they're going to need to address the quarterback position at some point. "Mayfield (6'0/220) is earning starter's grades from NFL scouts due to his accuracy and mobility, and seems a reasonable investment despite his physical limitations. Have you heard that story somewhere before?," asks Reuter. The only reason this may not be a fit is that the 5-2 Saints may not pick high enough to take the Sooner QB.

Pro Football Focus's Steve Palazzolo has the Cleveland Browns selecting Oklahoma senior QB Baker Mayfield first overall.

Mayfield (6'0/220) has had the highest PFF grade for two straight years, so it's no surprise to see him selected first overall in the analytic-driven mock draft. "There are still some questions coming out of a favorable Oklahoma system, but Mayfield has shown that he can succeed in every situation and he may just be the guy to turn the Browns around in the future," Palazzolo says. Mayfield will look to continue to see his stock rise against rival Oklahoma State on Saturday.
