What a collegiate career it’s been for Baker Mayfield.
The often controversial Oklahoma Sooners quarterback’s amazing college career came to an end in an epic 54-48 loss to the Georgia Bulldogs in the 2018 Rose Bowl.
During his press conference after the stunning loss, the 2018 Heisman-winner was full of emotions as he reflected back on his career at Oklahoma and how it was starting to settle in that he would not be putting on a Sooners uniform again:
