Baker Mayfield Won't Start For Oklahoma Against West Virginia

The Oklahoma Sooners are punishing QB Baker Mayfield for his behavior towards Kansas. Head coach Lincoln Riley said Mayfield won't start against the West Virginia Mountaineers, but he will play in the game. 

Here's the video of Mayfield's actions towards Kansas, including cussing them out and grabbing his crotch. This came after Kansas players refused to shake Mayfield's hand and Mayfield took a cheap shot after a pass. 

Mayfield is the current Heisman front-runner and has the Sooners in position to make the College Football Playoff. With Mayfield out, Kyler Murray will start. Murray, a transfer from Texas A&M, has played sparingly this year. He's completed 16 of 19 passes for 307 yards, 2 TDs and no picks. He's also a dangerous runner, averaging 6.2 yards per carry this year.
