Baker Mayfield dominates 2017 awards night

O.J. Simpson says he cast vote for 2017 Heisman Trophy Despite his jail sentence Simpson wasn't stripped of his Heisman win from 1968 which means he still has a vote in future Heisman

"It is an honor to win an award like the Paul Hornung Award for the most versatile player in college football", Barkley said in a statement. Mayfield leads the nation in passer efficiency rating and has thrown for 4,340 yards and 41 touchdowns.

And of course, Mayfield is considered the heavy favorite to win the Heisman Trophy, which will be announced Saturday night in NY. Not only has he put up video game-like numbers for Oklahoma, but he led the Sooners to a Big 12 title, 12-1 record and a spot in the College Football Playoff. As for the Maxwell Award, which is given to the player of the year in college football, Mayfield beat out a pair of running backs in Penn State's Saquon Barkley and Stanford's Bryce Love.

This awards night representation likely proves Mayfield is the nation's top player and inevitable Heisman Trophy victor on Saturday. I have to give a lot of the credit to my teammates and coaches, they are the reason that I am in position to win this award and I could not have done it without them.

He has 129 career touchdown passes and 14,320 yards.

The Bednarik Award, which is given to the best defensive player in college football, was won by Alabama defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick. The big victor was Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, who won both the Walter Camp, Davey O'Brien and Maxwell Awards. Wishnowski was a finalist for this year's Ray Guy Award as well.
