The Big 12 Conference Offensive Player of the Year, Mayfield is the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night.

Earlier in the day, Mayfield was selected as the Walter Camp Player of the Year by the Walter Camp Football Foundation.

Love and Louisville's Lamar Jackson each earned two first-place votes for the AP award.

Mayfield, Andrews, Brown and OU linebacker Ogbonnia Okoronkwo were also announced as Walter Camp All-Americans Thursday night. Oklahoma has had three previous winners: quarterback Josh Heupel in 2001, quarterback Jason White in 2003 and quarterback Sam Bradford in 2008. I have to give a lot of the credit to my teammates and coaches, they are the reason that I am in position to win this award and I could not have done it without them.

The AP player of the year has been awarded since 1998. Never again, though. When he was asked about it by the media on Wednesday, Mayfield smiled and said, "I don't think I'll be doing that".

No. 2-ranked OU, which behind Mayfield leads the nation in yards per game (583.3) and yards per play (8.4; next highest is 7.6), will make its 51st bowl appearance when it takes on No. 3 Georgia in the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual on January 1 at 4:10 p.m. CT. "Obviously I'm very happy and thankful that I'm being recognized with this". Mayfield leads the nation in passer efficiency rating and has thrown for 4,340 yards and 41 touchdowns.

Mayfield played high school football in Austin, Texas, but did not receive a scholarship offer from the Longhorns.

Baker won the Maxwell Award as the national player of the year and the Davey O'Brien Award, which goes to the country's top quarterback, to highlight the College Football Awards Show.

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.
