Mayfield delighted Sooner Nation by announcing his intentions to return to Norman for his redshirt senior season.

OFFICIAL:”I’ll be here another year for a three-peat. The ultimate goal is to play for a national championship.” Baker Mayfield on 2017.

Mayfield has been outstanding in his two years with Oklahoma after transferring from Texas Tech.

In two seasons that generated some Heisman Trophy buzz, Mayfield was one of the most productive quarterbacks in the country.

Exhibit A of that type of play came on the first play of the second quarter Saturday, when Mayfield waited for a long time before finding Dede Westbrook for a 69-yard catch-and-run touchdown.

The Sooners have looked as good as any team in the country, and with Mayfield back next year, his goal could be a real possibility.
