Mayfield easily outpointed Stanford running back Bryce Love, who came in second.

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield is the victor of the 2017 Davey O'Brien Award, given out on Thursday at the College Football Awards Show at the College Football Hall of Fame.

If Mayfield, who has also rushed for 310 yards and five touchdowns, can lead Oklahoma to a national championship, he would be the 15th player to win both the Heisman and a national championship in the same season.

Baker Mayfield was awarded the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night at the PlayStation Theater in Manhattan.

Mayfield led the Sooners to a 12-1 record and a spot in the college football playoff as they will take on Georgia in the Rose Bowl. Mayfield leads the nation in passer efficiency rating and has thrown for 4,340 yards and 41 touchdowns. Oklahoma has had three previous winners: quarterback Josh Heupel in 2001, quarterback Jason White in 2003 and quarterback Sam Bradford in 2008.

Lamar Jackson's quest to be the second ever two-time Heisman victor has came up short. "Obviously I'm very happy and thankful that I'm being recognized with this". He was at Texas Tech, and played as a freshman, but ended up transferring to Oklahoma.

Mayfield is the first FBS player to pass for more than 14,000 yards and rush for more than 1,000 in a career. He was in Atlanta for the ESPN's college football awards show at the Hall of Fame. Earlier in the week, Mayfield won the Maxwell Award as the nation's top player, and the Davey O'Brien Award as the nation's top quarterback. He is also a finalist for the Manning Award.
