Mayfield named AP College Player of the Year

The Associated Press - December 8, 2017 9:44 am

NEW YORK (AP) — Baker Mayfield is The Associated Press college football Player of the Year, becoming the fourth Oklahoma quarterback to win the award since it was established in 1998.

Mayfield, the Heisman Trophy favorite, easily outpointed Stanford running back Bryce Love, who came in second.

Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson, the other finalist and last season’s Heisman winner, was third.

Mayfield received 51 first-place votes from the 56 AP college football poll voters who submitted ballots.

Mayfield wasn’t done there, however, as he also took home the equally prestigious Maxwell Award, which dates back to 1937 and goes to the top player in college football, as well as the Davey O’Brien Award, given out annually to the nation’s best quarterback since 1981.

Just as he wasn’t done after he won the Walter Camp Player of  the Year Award, he’s likely not done collecting hardware as he’s the overwhelming favorite to take home the Heisman Trophy Saturday night.
