Oklahoma Sooners QB Baker Mayfield cleans up at awards show

Baker Mayfield claims Davey O'Brien Award

He beat out JT Barrett from Ohio State and Oklahoma State's Mason Rudolph for the Davey O'Brien Award and the Walter Camp Award is given to the AP's player of the year. The Heisman Trophy victor will be named Saturday night, with Mayfield, Love and Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson the three finalists.

The O'Brien Award was initially given to the top player in the Southwest before going to a quarterback-only honor in 1981.

Love won the Doak Walker Award, which is given to the best running back in college football.

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

He also was named the Associated Press national player of the year, earning 51 of 56 first-place votes.

"I'm on this awards trip right now with a lot of great players from OU and other schools, and every one of them deserves to be recognized. To receive this award is an honor and it's something just a few years ago I never thought would happen", Mayfield said.

Senior quarterback Baker Mayfield took home the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award and the Maxwell Award, both of which are given to the nation's top player, and the Davey O' Brien Award, which goes to the top quarterback.
