Oh Kansas, what is it y’all are doing out there? And I guess the same could be said for the player himself, too.
One-win KU was playing host to No. 4 Oklahoma Saturday afternoon, and even prior to the game the Jayhawks’ captains, for whatever reason, decide to attempt to get into the head of Heisman frontrunner Baker Mayfield.
The Sooners quarterback subsequently had a message for the KU fans in attendance…

… before apparently going lowbrow after scoring on the Jayhawks defense.
After TD pass, Mayfield waves arms up while yelling at KU bench. Yells at KU coaches, slaps his butt, then grabs his crotch.

Should that be considered some sort of bizarro Heisman moment?
Anyway, at the end of the third quarter, Oklahoma leads the Jayhawks 28-3. Mayfield has thrown for 242 yards and three touchdowns through three quarters of play.
Whether Mayfield’s antics and histrionics — the ESPN broadcast team called it classless — hurt him in the minds of some Heisman voters remains to be seen.
