Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield said he had "no idea" his teammates would take his jersey out to midfield for the coin toss Saturday, and said the ovation he received from Sooners fans after serving a one-series suspension always will stick with him. "The love I got when I first went in is something I'll never forget," said Mayfield, whose Sooners crushed West Virginia 59-31. "Means the world to me. Having that fan support, the moment itself for me. ... It's going to be tough knowing I'm not going to play here anymore. But the thing that gets me through it is we've got three more games." The Sooners will face TCU in the Big 12 championship game next weekend. If they win, they'll likely advance to the College Football Playoff. Saturday was an emotional day for Mayfield, who started the game on the bench. He was suspended from starting and temporarily stripped of his captaincy for grabbing his crotch and yelling, "F--- you!" to the Kansas sideline last weekend. Because he was barred from walking to midfield, fellow Oklahoma captains Orlando Brown and Dimitri Flowers took Mayfield's jersey with them.
