Baker Mayfield celebrates after defeating the Auburn Tigers

This season, he's recorded 4,340 passing yards and 41 touchdowns.

The big victor was Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, who won both the Walter Camp, Davey O'Brien and Maxwell Awards.

Mayfield was the first player to be a three-time finalist since the award began naming just three finalists in 1991.

Mayfield, Love and Jackson are also the finalists for the Heisman, which will be handed out Saturday night in NY.

Turkish gold trader says he paid $45000 bribe to USA prison guard
Zarrab said the inmate confronted him with a knife and said "he had received instructions to kill me because I was cooperating". Zarrab has accused Turkish politicians, including President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of helping Iran evade US sanctions.


Love and Louisville's Lamar Jackson each earned two first-place votes for the AP award. As a result, Mayfield is the fourth Sooner to take home the award in addition to Sam Bradford (2008), White (2003, '04) and Sims (1978). He also ranks second in passing touchdowns (41), third in total offense (357.7 ypg) and fourth in passing yards (333.8 per game).

Mayfield played high school football in Austin, Texas, but did not receive a scholarship offer from the Longhorns. With the Sooners, he has become a three-year starter and one of the most productive passers in college football history. He's had 34 punts of more than 50 yards, 14 of more than 60 yards and a career-long 76-yarder against TCU.

The University of Oklahoma football program is heading back to Norman with plenty of hardware in hand after Thursday night's Home Depot College Football Awards in Atlanta.

Mayfield beat out another Big 12 quarterback in Oklahoma State's Mason Rudolph, and Ohio State's J.T. Barrett for the Davey O'Brien Award. Iowa won the Disney Spirit Award for its new tradition of almost everyone in 70,585-seat Kinnick Stadium turning to wave to the pediatric patients watching from across the street inside the Stead Family Children's Hospital at the end of the first quarter. Wishnowski was a finalist for this year's Ray Guy Award as well.
