I think the whole thing was blown up more than it needed to be, but things are amplified when you're the best player in college football, so I do understand that part of the deal. Louisville QB Lamar Jackson, last year's Heisman victor, and Stanford RB Bryce Love trailed Mayfield in the balloting.
Baker Mayfield, the dynamic quarterback out of Oklahoma, Lamar Jackson, Louisville's Heisman winning quarterback from a year ago, and Stanford running back Bryce Love.
For Mayfield, it was the third-highest percentage of possible points received (86 percent) since 1950, behind Ohio State's Troy Smith (2006) and Oregon's Marcus Mariota (2014). His 203.8 pass efficiency rating also led all FBS passers. Mayfield's staggering stats (4,340 yards, 41 TD passes, just five picks) made him an easy choice. The previous six all won the award at least one of those years (Archie Griffin did it twice), and Mayfield has joined this exclusive club of college football legends that includes Griffin, Glenn Davis, Doc Blanchard, Doak Walker, Herschel Walker and Tim Tebow. He also ran for 310 yards and five more touchdowns on the ground.
Mayfield became the sixth Oklahoma player to win the Heisman (Love became the sixth Stanford player to finish second), and he does so because of a season in which he threw multiple touchdown passes in every game, averaged at least 10 yards per attempt 10 times and passed for over 300 yards eight times. If I'm an National Football League coach, I want him running my team.
Mayfield still has some unfinished business to attend to this season.
Mayfield and the Sooners face Georgia in the Rose Bowl on January 1 in a CFP semifinal, with the victor to face Alabama or Clemson in the championship game on January 8.
Few votes in Heisman history have been as lopsided as this year's, but it is tough to argue against the notion that Mayfield deserved to be a runaway victor.
