  • Oklahoma disciplines Baker Mayfield for obscene gesture

The Sooners are a legitimate College Football Playoff contender, in need of two wins in the final two weeks, first at home against West Virginia and then in the Big 12 title game, to give themselves that opportunity.

The Sooners' regular season finale is slated for 2:45 p.m.at Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman.

Baker Mayfield was a naughty fellow during Oklahoma's game last Saturday against Kansas, and now he's going to pay the price for his bad behavior.

While his team was up 27-3, Mayfield grabbed his crotch and yelled "f-k you" at the Kansas sideline. "They're not adults yet, they're still learning", Riley said.

". I think it's important for everybody here (and) across the country to keep in perspective. that not just Baker, but all these players across the country are still young men".


This according to HC Lincoln Riley, who is punishing Mayfield for his antics against Kansas on Saturday.

"I got caught up in a competitive game, a chippy game, but what I did today, tonight, was unacceptable", Mayfield said.

Mayfield, a Heisman Trophy candidate, has completed 71 percent of his passes this season for 3,816 yards and 34 touchdowns while tossing just five interceptions.

Some Heisman voters have referenced the award's "character clause" as reason not to pick Mayfield. He's the best player in America. "He's got a great heart that a lot of people don't get the chance to see like I do".
