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.
Dec 3 - 5:33 PM

Oklahoma redshirt sophomore RB Joe Mixon rushed for 99 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries in the school's 38-20 win over Oklahoma State.

He added another two catches for 19 yards and a touchdown. Mixon could enter the NFL, which would conjure up plenty of questions from NFL front offices, or he could return to Oklahoma for another year and likely lead the Sooners in carries. His stats included a 79 yard touchdown today.
Dec 3 - 4:46 PM

Oklahoma junior RB Samaje Perine rushed for 239 yards and a touchdown on 37 carries in the school's 38-20 win over Oklahoma State.

Perine could have easily scored another touchdown, but on the final drive he took a knee at the one yard line to run out the clock. Perine's name gets lost in the running back shuffle, however, that could change as many file through the ball carriers leading up to the 2017 NFL Draft. That is if Perine declares for the draft.
Dec 3 - 4:30 PM

Oklahoma senior WR Dede Westbrook suffered a possible concussion in the second quarter against Oklahoma State after catching four passes for 111 yards and a touchdown.

Westbrook was Oklahoma's entire offense in the first half, and Baker Mayfield set him up to fail by throwing him that type of pass over the middle. The hit was clean, and Westbrook's head seemed to bounce off the ground on contact. Perhaps no receiver improved their evaluation more this season than Westbrook. He is headed to the Senior Bowl in January.

An area scout indicated to MMQB that Oklahoma senior WR Dede Westbrook has been receiving excellent coaching with the Sooners.

"They’ve done a great job coaching him. He’s pretty good in all areas now—hands, he’s more confident, he’s catching the ball better," the scout said, "and there’s a little something about him." Westbrook has compiled a 70-1354-15 receiving line through 11 games while averaging a sweet 19.3 yards per reception. "The rise that he's made [from a 46-743-4 2015 season], it's unbelievable," the scout said. He believes Westbrook could be high-climber in this spring's draft.

Oklahoma junior CB Michiah Quick has been dismissed from the team.

Sooners HC Bob Stoops only offered that Quick had been dismissed due to a violation of team rules. A converted wideout, Quick has not played since October 8, when he sprained his MCL against Texas. The 6-foot, 170-pound junior appeared in five games this season, but did not record any statistical production during those contests.

Oklahoma redshirt sophomore RB Joe Mixon recently apologized for striking a woman at a Campus Corner restaurant, an incident that occurred in 2014.

Mixon cites advice from his lawyers as to why it took him over two years to apologize for the incident, which led to multiple bone fractures in the woman's face. Mixon sat out the 2014 season due to the incident. The running backs says he was not drunk and has never had a drink in his life. He will certainly be questioned about the event, but we all witnessed Tyreek Hill drafted in the fifth-round, so Mixon's draft projection might not be impacted.

A judge in Oklahoma City has dismissed two-thirds of the claims in a lawsuit involving Oklahoma redshirt sophomore RB Joe Mixon and a female he punched.

The female filed a lawsuit two years after the incident, missing the one year window which likely led to this decision. There is no doubt Mixon hit the woman, it is on video tape, so his future will still be impacted by the incident. The woman suffered fractured bones in her face. Remember this story during draft season.

Oklahoma senior WR Dede Westbrook has gone over 100 yards receiving in seven of his past eight games.

During that stretch, he's logged 15 touchdowns, or nearly two per game. Westbrook, a big play maven, is averaging 19.3 yards per catch this season. The fleet receiver was hampered by a gimpy hamstring early this season but has been one of the nation's best wideouts since healing. "Westbrook finds a bunch of ways to contribute -- as a receiver, an occasional rusher and a returner (he has one punt return for a touchdown this season)," ESPN's Todd McShay wrote.

Oklahoma senior WR Dede Westbrook caught two passes for 100 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 56-28 win over West Virginia.

Westbrook wasn't catching passes left and right, but no matter. The 6-foot, 176-pound senior still reached the century mark, needing just two grabs to do it. His touchdown came on a little outside pass on which he caught the ball near the line of scrimmage, then wrestled free from a failed tackle, kept his balance in the snow and had enough juice left to accelerate down the right sideline for the score. He did all of that from 75 yards out. Yowza. The 6-foot, 176-pounder is working to a 70-1354-15 receiving line through 11 games. This is impressive in its own right, made all the more so by the fact that Westbrook had just 154 yards receiving through his first three games of the season.
Nov 20 - 12:18 AM

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.
Nov 20 - 12:00 AM

Oklahoma junior RB Samaje Perine rushed for 160 yards and two touchdowns on 31 carries in Saturday's 56-28 win over West Virginia.

Perine has missed three games this season due to leg injury, but he has come on at just the right time for fantasy owners. After bruising Baylor with 100 yards and two touchdowns last weekend, he one-upped himself against the Mountaineers on Saturday. Playing in an on-again, off-again snowstorm, the 5-foot-11, 243-pound junior brought the heat with two short touchdown runs in the first half on his way to averaging 5.1 YPC. He had a few cracks at notching touchdown No. 3 in the second half, but none of those would result in a score. Five of Perine's eight games this season have seen him rush for two touchdowns. He is up to an even 10 for the season as a whole. The Sooners will wrap up the regular season against Oklahoma State on December 3, as they have the luxury of a bye over the Thanksgiving weekend.
Nov 19 - 11:53 PM

The Big 12 championship game will be played at Jerry's World in Arlington, Texas, beginning in 2017.

AT&T Stadium will host the freshly birthed title game from 2017-2021. Kansas City and San Antonio were two other host cities being seriously considered but ultimately falling to the wayside. In a statement, Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said, "The building is a state of the art facility and offers many amenities that will be enjoyed by our institutions and fans." The Big 12 opted to implement a title game over the summer. Come 2017, the top two teams in the conference by record will do battle down in Texas for conference title rights. There had been talk of perhaps splitting the conference into divisions, but that did not come to pass.

Oklahoma defensive coordinator Mike Stoops believes redshirt junior DL Charles Walker quit on his teammates.

Walker informed coaches about his decision to start preparing for the NFL Draft immediately rather than finishing the season. "Quitting on your teammates is hard to take, as a coach," Mike Stoops said. Bob Stoops said the defensive lineman's departure "lifts a distraction" from the locker room. Like Jalen Hurd, Walker's decision will be questioned by NFL teams.
