Baker Mayfield Wins 2017 Heisman Trophy Over Lamar Jackson, Bryce Love

When the dust settled, Mayfield walked away with the Heisman, with Love finishing second and Jackson finishing third. It didn't always look like Mayfield would join Billy Sims, Jason White and Sam Bradford as Heisman winners for the Sooners, especially not after Oklahoma lost to Iowa State in the middle of the season. The Buckeyes should have made the College Football Playoff.

He has been the toast of the college football awards scene lately also having won The Associated Press Player of the Year, Davey O'Brien Award, Walter Camp Player of the Year, and Maxwell Award.

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, a Heisman Trophy finalist, takes a question Saturday, Dec. 9, 2017, in NY. Mayfield is the 7th player to ever be a finalist three times.

The redshirt senior totaled 4,340 passing yards this season to go with 41 touchdowns and only five interceptions while rushing for 310 yards and five more scores. He threw for 598 yards in a Bedlam rivalry win over Oklahoma State, and he was almost flawless (27 of 35 for 386 yards and three TDs) in a 31-16 road win at Ohio State. He leads the nation with a 71-percent completion percentage, a record-setting passing efficiency rating (203.8), yards per completion (16.6) and pass plays of more than 20 yards (75).

"Coach [Lincoln] Riley you have been a mentor to me", he said.

In other years, that may have been reason enough to not vote for Mayfield if the other candidates were even in the same stratosphere as him, but they're not, and that's why he may set a record for margin of victory when the Heisman is announced.
