Baker Mayfield wins Maxwell Award

Baker Mayfield wins Maxwell Award

This awards night representation likely proves Mayfield is the nation's top player and inevitable Heisman Trophy victor on Saturday.

The O'Brien Award was initially given to the top player in the Southwest before going to a quarterback-only honor in 1981. The Sooners' signal-caller set a national record for passing efficiency and posted 41 touchdowns against just five interceptions. 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.

Georgia linebacker Roquan Smith won the Butkus Award, given to the best linebacker.

Although the Heisman Trophy victor won't be announced until Saturday, it will likely be a formality as Mayfield has dominated just about every aspect of the game this season.

76ers agree to trade Jahlil Okafor to Nets
This trade allows the Sixers to (somewhat) save face following several ugly months of drama . The improving Sixers (13-10) had declined their team option for next season on Okafor.

He joins Josh Heupel (2000), Jason White (2003) and Sam Bradford (2008) as previous winners from Oklahoma.

"I'm on this awards trip right now with a lot of great players from OU and other schools, and every one of them deserves to be recognized". Wishnowski was a finalist for this year's Ray Guy Award as well. "I am so appreciative of Mr. Hornung and the Louisville Sports Commission for selecting me for this very special honor".

Mayfield played high school football in Austin, Texas, but did not receive a scholarship offer from the Longhorns. With the Sooners, he has become a three-year starter and one of the most productive passers in college football history. He has also rushed for 310 yards and another five scores with no fumbles lost.

The Oklahoma quarterback took home the Davey O'Brien award for best quarterback and Maxwell Award for best overall player during Thursday night's college football awards show.
