Baker Mayfield Says He'll Return For Senior Season

After his team won a second consecutive Big 12 championship Saturday, Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield said he will return for his senior season

"I'm coming back," Mayfield said after the No. 9 Sooners defeated No. 10 Oklahoma State 38-20. "I'll be here for another year for the opportunity of a three-peat and the ultimate goal of winning a national title."

Mayfield, who finished fourth in the Heisman voting last year, has re-emerged as a Heisman contender this season. In Bedlam, he completed 13 of 19 passes for 288 yards and three touchdowns to remain on pace to break the FBS season record for passing efficiency.

Over the summer, the Big 12 approved a rule proposal that gave Mayfield eligibility at Oklahoma for the 2017 season. Before the rule change, Big 12 walk-ons that transferred within the conference lost a season of eligibility. Mayfield was a walk-on at Texas Tech before transferring to Oklahoma in 2014.

"I've dreamed of playing here for too long, I fought for that extra year of eligibility for too long," Mayfield said. ( More at ESPN)
