Hey, friends and fans. It’s the day before the College Football Awards show where there will be at least a few chances for the Oklahoma Sooners to bring home some fine hardware. The headliners for the Sooners include Baker Mayfield, who is a finalist for the Maxwell and the Davey O’Brien, and Orlando Brown, who is up for the Outland. Tune in for all of that and more at 6 p.m. CT tomorrow on ESPN.

This just in: Mark Andrews has become the first Sooner to win the John Mackey Award for the nation’s best tight end! Congratulations, Mark!

For Hot Links today, you’ll find out how you can help Conner McGinnis win Holder of the Year, learn which single play heavily shaped Oklahoma’s playoff outlook, watch what Sooner commit Spencer Rattler can do on the hardwood and much more!

  • A student at the University of Oklahoma has started a petition that asks for Baker Mayfield’s inevitable statue in Heisman Park to be modeled after his iconic planting of the OU flag. As of writing this, the petition has nearly 2,500 signatures. Time will tell if this petition will influence the powers that be. Personally, I’m in favor of this, wholeheartedly.
  • OU’s Connor McGinnis is a finalist for the Mortell Holder of the Year Award! If you haven’t voted for Conner yet, there’s still time! Voting ends tomorrow, so hurry and do it now!

  • With a little persistence and the help of 10,000 retweets, SB Nation’s Ryan Nanni has fulfilled a dream. Have no fear, Bloomin’ Onion Man is here.
