Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops doesn't know if redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield (head) will be cleared to play at Oklahoma State.

Mayfield took a dirty hit to the back of the helmet from TCU linebacker Ty Summers. Cameras zoomed in on a face that went foggy and a body that stiffened, but incredibly Mayfield was allowed to remain in the game. At halftime, the Sooners elected to go with Trevor Knight after Mayfield admitted he was having headaches. "I sure don't know anything right now," Stoops said. "That'll all be up to our doctors and trainers. But they'll be thorough in checking him." If they win Bedlam, the Sooners win the Big 12 title. "Losing Baker hurt us," defensive coordinator Mike Stoops said. "He's our leader. He inspires us all, in a lot of ways."

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield did not play in the second half of Saturday's 30-29 win over TCU due to a head injury.

Mayfield took a hard, late hit from TCU linebacker Ty Summers in the second quarter. Summers was subsequently ejected for targeting. Mayfield didn't play in the second half and after the game HC Bob Stoops indicated that the decision was a medical one made at halftime. Consider the quarterback day-to-day moving forward, with further updates likely to follow. Trevor Knight took over in Mayfield's absence.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield's "performance against Baylor cemented his spot" in the Hesiman race, ESPN's Brandon Chatmon notes.

"If he can shine against TCU and Oklahoma State to finish the season, there's a chance. His current résumé checks all the boxes, but if he can get more Heisman moments against the Horned Frogs and Cowboys, that would be beneficial to his chances in the race," Chatmon tweeted. The Oklahoma prospect passed for 270 yards, completing 24-of-34 passes, with three touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's big 44-34 win over Baylor. On the year, Mayfield has recorded 3,082 passing yards, with a 31/5 TD/INT ratio, not to mention, his six rushing touchdowns.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield was compared to Ryan Fitzpatrick by NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter.

"The junior is a true gunslinger with quick enough feet to make defenses pay," Reuter wrote. "Mayfield reminds me of Fitzpatrick, who is more athletic than you'd think and never saw a throw he didn't like." The 6-foot-1, 209-pound redshirt junior is similar to Fitz in both size and style. Mayfield is up to 3,082 passing yards and a 31/5 TD/INT ratio, putting him squarely in the Heisman conversation.

A social media campaign has been launched to support Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield's Heisman hopes.

A gif of Mayfield as a dancing eight-bit video game character was posted to Twitter on Monday, accompanied by the inevitable hashtag of #Baker4Heisman. So that's a thing that's happening right now. Mayfield's coming on strong, having just boosted the Sooners to a defining win against a previously-undefeated Baylor team on Saturday. The 6-foot-1, 209-pound redshirt junior's thrown for three or more touchdowns in all but two of Oklahoma's 10 games this season while compiling 3,082 passing yards and a 31/5 TD/INT ratio. On top of that, he's danced his way to six rushing touchdowns. Video game numbers indeed.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield completed 24-of-34 passes for 270 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 44-34 win over Baylor.

Mayfield's work through the air was certainly impressive, but he also showed off nice burst and shiftiness on the ground. The 6-foot-1, 209-pound redshirt junior rushed for 76 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries. His 2015 campaign has been nothing short of phenomenal, as he's thrown for 3,082 yards with a 31/5 TD/INT ratio. He's also scored six rushing touchdowns. Mayfield has thrown at least three touchdown passes in eight of Oklahoma's 10 games.

Since losing to Texas on October 10, Oklahoma's posted at least 50 points and at least 500 yards of total offense in each of their last four games.

Shiny statistics there for the Sooners, though it should be noted that those wins came against Big-12 door-holders Kansas State, Texas Tech, Kansas and Iowa State. Leading Oklahoma's romp through this inferior competition would be redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield. On passes of 10 or more yards downfield, the 6-foot-1, 209-pound gunslinger's been fantastic. He's tossed 17 touchdowns to just one interception on such throws. Mayfield also has an FBS-best mark of five games (in nine contests) in which he's thrown for at least three touchdowns without an interception. Baylor stomped Oklahoma by 34 points last season, but even if the Bears gear up for another route on Saturday, Mayfield's a DFS stud.
Nov 13 - 9:27 PM

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield completed 27-of-32 passes for 383 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 62-7 win over Kansas.

Mayfield threw three of his four scores in the very first quarter, hooking up with Joe Mixon, Durron Neal and Sterling Shepard on scores of 68, 11 and four yards, respectively. The 6-foot-1, 209-pound redshirt junior has thrown at least three touchdown passes in all but two games. Across eight contests completed, he's thrown for 2,470 yards with a sparkling 25/4 TD/INT ratio. Mayfield's also punched in four rushing touchdowns, though all came in Oklahoma's first three games of the 2015 campaign.
Oct 31 - 8:18 PM

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield is 15-for-31 with a 4/0 TD/INT ratio and +9.5 PFF grade on passes thrown 20 yards or more downfield.

This makes Mayfield arguably the nation's most dangerous downfield passer. As for his overall game? PFF grades him as one of the nation's five best signal-callers at the moment. The 6-foot-1, 209-pound redshirt junior will re-enter the Heisman discussion if the Sooners run the table, though that won't be easy with games against undefeated Baylor, TCU and Oklahoma State to close out the year.
Oct 28 - 4:16 PM

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield said that "it's good to see that [the Sooner offense] can be explosive."

Oklahoma's offense is the fifth best in the country in terms of pass efficiency. They ranked a horrific 93rd in that same metric last season. Said Mayfield, "The Big 12, it's a conference that's adapting. Everybody's using the [spread] offense and everybody's scoring a lot of points. That's a jump Coach Stoops wanted to make. I'm happy we have the offense here, and I know the other guys are, too." The 6-foot-1, 209-pound redshirt junior's thrown for 1,875 yards with a stellar 19/3 TD/INT ratio over the course of six contests. This weekend, his match-up is the juiciest of juicy, as he'll be squaring off with a Texas Tech team that's already surrendered monster QB games to TCU's Trevone Boykin and Baylor's Seth Russell.
Oct 23 - 11:23 PM

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield completed 20-of-27 passes for 282 yards and five touchdowns in Saturday's 55-0 win over Kansas State.

Well, that's one way to bounce back from an embarrassing loss to Texas. Mayfield completely owned Kansas State on Saturday, throwing all five of his touchdown passes in the first half as Oklahoma stormed out to a 35-0 lead before hitting the locker room. The five touchdown passes represented a career-high for the 6-foot-1, 209-pound redshirt junior. He's thrown for at least three touchdowns in all but one game this season.
Oct 17 - 7:10 PM

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield said that he's "alive and well" following a six-sack drubbing by Texas on Saturday.

Sooner Nation might currently be working through a process of soul-searching following Saturday's defeat in the Red River Shootout, but Mayfield at least has a sense of humor about his offensive line's issues. Said the 6-foot-1, 209-pound redshirt junior, "I'm walking around, alive and well. I'm good." He's been sacked 16 times through five games. Center Ty Darlington was less jocular in his comments, noting that "we're almost halfway through the year" and that he (Darlington) needs to personally improve on setting a tenacious standard in the trenches.
Oct 15 - 10:00 PM

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield completed 20 of 28 attempts for 211 yards and a touchdown in the school's 24-17 loss to Texas.

He was sacked on a number of occasions, which really set the offense back. Mayfield did not look bad in the game, but it was his worst performance of the season, which is saying something. The loss was Oklahoma's first of the season.
