Oklahoma QB Mayfield wins Heisman Trophy in landslide

Oklahoma QB Mayfield wins Heisman Trophy in landslide

Louisville QB Lamar Jackson, last year's Heisman victor, and Stanford RB Bryce Love trailed Mayfield in the balloting.

Mayfield became the sixth Sooner to win the award, but the 22-year-old made history by becoming the first-ever Heisman Trophy victor to start their collegiate career as a walk-on. I think the whole thing was blown up more than it needed to be, but things are amplified when you're the best player in college football, so I do understand that part of the deal.

He has been the toast of the college football awards scene lately also having won The Associated Press Player of the Year, Davey O'Brien Award, Walter Camp Player of the Year, and Maxwell Award.

The Oklahoma quarterback won the Heisman Trophy Saturday night in his second year as a finalist, following a fourth-place finish in 2015 and a third-place finish last year.

While Russia condemned North Korea's latest missile test, Lavrov also raised concerns about the large-scale U.S. He also complained that the United States was "totally ignoring" a U.N. demand for talks with North Korea.

This season, Mayfield has passed for 4,340 yards with 41 touchdowns and just five interceptions, and he has rushed for 310 yards and five more scores.

The quarterback was arrested in February and pleaded guilty to three misdemeanors, including public intoxication. He leads the nation with a 71-percent completion percentage, a record-setting passing efficiency rating (203.8), yards per completion (16.6) and pass plays of more than 20 yards (75).

NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah has noted improvement in Mayfield as a pocket passer this season, and analyst Bucky Brooks has compared him to New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees.

"It's been a tough journey", Mayfield said.
