Heisman Trophy 2017: Baker Mayfield season highlights

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield accepted the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night with a gracious and emotional speech at the PlayStation Theater in New York City.

For Mayfield, it was the third-highest percentage of possible points received (86 percent) since 1950, behind Ohio State's Troy Smith (2006) and Oregon's Marcus Mariota (2014).

The quarterback is the sixth player in Sooners history to become a Heisman victor. Oklahoma cruised to a Big 12 title thanks in large part to the quarterback's heroics, as Mayfield threw for 4,340 yards with 41 touchdowns and only five interceptions through 13 games. Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson, last year's Heisman victor, was third, the best finish by a returning victor since Tim Tebow of Florida in 2008. He also has 310 yards and five touchdowns as a runner.

Pep Guardiola Reveals What He Said In Angry Exchange With Nathan Redmond
City host West Ham at 16:00 GMT on Sunday, while Southampton travel to south-coast rivals Bournemouth at 13:30 on the same day. This season, however, Citizens earned all three points thanks to a late victor from Raheem Sterling.

Mayfield also discussed overcoming some difficulties, and although he didn't name them specifically, his February arrest for public intoxication and his one-series suspension for making a lewd gesture toward Kansas Jayhawks players this season may have been among the incidents he was referencing. He's formed a ideal pairing with head coach Lincoln Riley, his offensive coordinator the past two years, as he established himself as a master of Oklahoma's wide-open offense with impressive arm strength, mobility and improvisational ability.

Mayfield is no stranger to controversy, but you can't deny the impact he made on the field this season.

Mayfield now looks to add a National Championship to his trophy case as he leads his Oklahoma Sooners in the college football playoff. He finished fourth in the Heisman balloting in 2015 and third previous year.
