Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield's playing style reminds NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah of Johnny Manziel at Texas A&M and Chase Daniel at Missouri.

"His lack of size and pure arm talent will temper the enthusiasm of NFL evaluators, but he's a special player at the college level," Jeremiah wrote. "He's coming back to school for his senior season and I think that's the right move for him. He needs to continue to get stronger as he goes through his final season." Oklahoma lists Mayfield at 6-foot-1 and 212 pounds, but he'd likely measure smaller if someone else had the tape measure.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield was named the winner of the Burlsworth Award.

The Burlsworth is awarded to those who began their collegiate careers as walk-ons. Mayfield won the honor over Washington State QB Luke Falk and Northwestern WR Austin Carr. This marks the second year in a row that Mayfield has taken home the award. He finished his 2016 regular season having thrown for 3,369 yards (71.2% completions) with a 38/8 TD/INT ratio. Mayfield will be returning for his redshirt senior campaign in 2017, so a third consecutive Burlsworth is not out of the question when all is said and done.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield announced that he's coming back for his final season next year.

The redshirt junior was granted an additional season of eligibility prior to the campaign when the Big 12 voted to allow walk-ons to transfer within the conference without losing a season of eligibility. Mayfield, who finished fourth in the Heisman Trophy voting last year, threw for 3,669 yards and 38 touchdowns this year.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield completed 13 of 19 attempts for 288 yards and three touchdowns in the school's 38-20 win over Oklahoma State.

Mayfield should return to Oklahoma, as his style fits the college game much more than the pros. That is not a criticism, as Mayfield can help Oklahoma reach their peak due to his big play ability. He does put stress on his offensive line at times, however, he saves them from poorly blocking at almost an equal rate.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield threw for two touchdowns and rushed for another two in Saturday's 56-28 win over West Virginia.

Mayfield might have totaled four touchdowns in the contest, but this wasn't a particularly flashy performance by the redshirt junior. He completed 9-of-15 passes for 169 yards and was intercepted once. As a runner, he had just seven yards on the ground. That he scored two touchdowns on his five official carries is a nice enough bonus for fantasy owners. For the season as a whole, Mayfield has now thrown for 3,381 yards with a 35/8 TD/INT ratio. He has notched six rushing touchdowns in 11 games.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield went 20-of-25 for 300 yards two touchdowns and an interception for 236 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's win over Baylor.

Both of Mayfield's scores went to stud WR Dede Westbrook. His 29-yard touchdown pass found a streaking, tight-rope walking Westbrookin the first quarter to help stake the Sooners to a 14-0 lead. A 40-yard touchdown pass to Westbrook later on sealed things, more or less, putting Oklahoma up 28-10. The Sooners ground out the clock from there.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield completed 25 of 34 attempts for 328 yards, four touchdowns and one interception in the school's 34-24 win over Iowa State.

Mayfield underthrew Jazz Reynolds for a long touchdown, so his numbers might have been even better. Mayfield is a really fun collegiate quarterback, creating space and thriving even when the structure of the play breaks down. Oklahoma's rest of season schedule includes Baylor, West Virginia and Oklahoma State.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield completed 16-of-24 passes for 236 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 56-3 win over Kansas.

Mayfield was unable to match the operatic heights of last weekend's offensive explosion offered against Texas Tech (545 yards passing, seven touchdowns), but that kind of superhero performance wasn't needed on Saturday. The 6-foot-1, 209-pounder's did the bulk of his work in the second quarter, when he fired off a trio of scoring passes to Dede Westbrook, Mark Andrews and Dimitri Flowers. Mayfield has now thrown for at least four touchdowns in each of his last three games. He has tossed 27 scores through eight contests completed.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield completed 27-of-36 passes for 545 yards and seven touchdowns in Saturday's 66-59 win over Texas Tech.

Mayfield threw for seven touchdown passes and somehow ended up a footnote to Pat Mahomes, who served as a CFB solar eclipse in blocking out the statistics of all others with his 734 yards passing. Solar eclipses cannot block out wins, though, and it was Mayfield and company who ultimately got the last laugh. Mayfield tossed three of his seven touchdown passes in the first half, a warm-up for an even more prolific second half. 14 of Mayfield's 23 touchdown passes have come in his last three games. He will have a strong chance to add to this recent binge (though maybe not to the tune of seven) when he takes on Kansas next weekend.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield completed 25 of 31 attempts for 346 yards, four touchdowns and one interception in the school's 38-17 win over Kansas State.

The 88 yard touchdown in the fourth quarter was a money throw from Mayfield to Dede Westbrook, the emerging target for the Sooners which has been missed since Sterling Shepard graduated last spring.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield completed 22 of 31 attempts for 390 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in the school's 45-40 win over Texas.

Mayfield added another rushing touchdown. The quarterback showed up to the game in a walking boot but played at a high level. He consistently was able to create space and convert plays with his feet, an important part of his game. Mayfield added another 71-yard completion early in the game.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield arrived to Saturday's game against Texas in a walking boot on his right foot, but is expected to play.

Mayfield went down in the second quarter against TCU last weekend, however, he was able to finish the game. Mobility is a mandatory piece of Mayfield's game, avoiding the pass rush and winning outside of structure. The Sooners should beat up a bottomed out Texas squad.

Ohio State DC Greg Schiano compared Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield's style of play to that of Brett Favre.

Schiano had the joy of trying to prep for Favre when he served as secondary coach for the Chicago Bears. Mayfield is giving him a few flashbacks. Said Schiano, "He's that unpredictable. He'll be scrambling this way and chuck it that way. How do you coach [against] that other than be disciplined and stay with your guys? That's the kind of really fine athlete that he is." Through two games, the 6-foot-1, 209-pound Sooner star has passed for 567 yards with a 5/0 TD/INT ratio. Schiano and the Buckeyes will try to rattle his cage on Saturday.

Oklahoma freshman QB Austin Kendall said that redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield will "light [Ohio State's defense] up" on Saturday.

Shots fired. Said Kendall, "I think they have a really basic defense. I think we can go out there and, I mean, Baker [Mayfield], he’ll light them up. I’m really looking forward to it. If my number’s called, I think I can do the same." The 6-foot-1, 209-pound Mayfield opened the season throwing for 323 yards and a pair of touchdowns against Houston before following that performance up with 244 passing yards and a trio of touchdowns against Louisiana Monroe this past weekend. Ohio State's defense has forced nine turnovers this season, best in the country.
