Oklahoma junior quarterback Baker Mayfield was among the 32 players on the 2015 Midseason Watch List for the College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) National Performer of the Year Trophy.

The list includes 23 quarterbacks and nine running backs at the FBS level.

Mayfield has thrown 14 touchdowns and just three interceptions this season, and has rushed for 4 touchdowns this season.
