VIDEO: Baker Mayfield plants Oklahoma flag at midfield in The Shoe

COLUMBUS (WCMH/AP) — Baker Mayfield made sure Ohio State fans took notice as he celebrated his Oklahoma Sooners’ victory in Columbus Saturday.

As the Sooners (2-0) celebrated late Saturday, Mayfield grabbed an Oklahoma flag and raced around the field before stopping and emphatically planting it in the middle of the block “O” logo at midfield as the Ohio State band stood and watched.

It was payback time for the Sooners, who had to watch Buckeyes players embrace and sing their alma mater on the field after the 45-24 loss at Oklahoma Memorial Stadium a year ago.

“It was embarrassing for them to sing their fight song on our field, and they probably feel the same way right now,” Mayfield said. “We’ve had that mood in the locker room that nobody believes in us.”

Mayfield lived up to his billing as a Heisman Trophy candidate in shifting the Sooners into overdrive and piling up the yards in the second half as the Buckeyes (1-1) offense sputtered. Oklahoma took its first lead of the game near the end of the third quarter and cruised in the fourth.
