Baker Mayfield was among seven players added to the 79th Maxwell Award watch list on Thursday.
Baker joins Oklahoma running back Samaje Perine and wide receiver Sterling Shepard, who were both on the preseason Maxwell Award watch list.
This season Mayfield set the OU single-game record for total offense (572 yards; most by an FBS player this year) against Tulsa and tied the school record by accounting for six TDs (four passing, two rushing).
Past OU winners are flanker Tommy McDonald (1956) and quarterback Jason White (2004).
The Maxwell Award is presented to the outstanding collegiate football player in America since 1937 and is named in honor of Robert W. “Tiny” Maxwell.
Semifinalists for the Maxwell Award will be announced on Nov. 2, and three finalists will be announced Nov. 24. The winner of the 2015 Maxwell Award will be announced as part of the Home Depot College Football Awards Show which will be held on Dec. 10 at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta.
