Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield was fired up Saturday night — and that might be an understatement.
Mayfield threw for 383 yards and three touchdowns to lead the No. 5 Sooners to a 31-16 win over the No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes in Columbus. The senior QB celebrated the impressive victory in style, too, running a victory lap around “the Horseshoe,” then rallying his teammates at midfield before planting the Oklahoma flag into the Ohio State logo at midfield.

Mayfield might’ve gone a little too far, but his excitement was understandable.
A Heisman Trophy finalist in 2016, Mayfield immediately jumped to the top of the race for this season’s Heisman with his performance against the Buckeyes.
