Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield became the sixth Sooner to win the Heisman on Saturday night.
Mayfield is the first player to win the Heisman after starting a career as a walk-on, according to ESPN.
Mayfield bested second-place finisher Bryce Love, a running back at Stanford and Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson, who won the Heisman last season.
Mayfield threw for 4,340 yards and 41 touchdowns with five interceptions.
Mayfield's Sooners will take part in the playoff against Georgia in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day.
