Oklahoma Sooners Football Hot Links: Midseason All-Americans, Baker Mayfield’s Heisman chances, and more!

Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield will have plenty of opportunities to impress voters.

NCAA Football: Oklahoma at Texas Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Tuesday! It’s a great week in Norman, Oklahoma. We’re keeping the golden hat here where it belongs, teams are playing NBA basketball this evening, and it finally doesn’t feel like you’re standing in a mouth when you step outside. Not to mention, it’s Spooky Season! Personally, I feel great. Let’s check out some links.

OU Links:

  • Four Oklahoma SoonersMark Andrews, Baker Mayfield, Orlando Brown and Ogbonnia Okoronkwo — have been named Midseason All-Americans by USA Today. I’m especially pleased about the fact that Obo is being given the recognition he deserves, and I’m actually fairly (and pleasantly) surprised by it.
  • When it comes to kicking field goals, Austin Seibert makes many of us sick with anxiety. But he was a rockstar on Saturday in all aspects of his game, as is illustrated in this piece.
  • Did you notice all the missed penalties during the OU-Texas game on Saturday? If so, you’re not alone. Here’s what Lincoln Riley had to say about them, as well as his thoughts on Sam Ehlinger’s acting ability.
  • The updated list of Heisman hopefuls is out and Mayfield is still in the Top 3. Personally, I think quarterbacks have a much better shot at the Heisman than running backs these days, but Barkley has indeed been unbelievable. We’ll have to see how the season plays out.
  • Which conference do you find most entertaining? ESPN ranked them by this factor only. I think the Pac-12 and Big-12 are most fun to watch, personally.

National Links:

  • A commentator for FOX read the prompter words instead of following the instructions. A real-life Anchorman moment.
