Baker Mayfield returned to Lubbock on Saturday night and made the most of his chance to shine on his old stomping grounds. The former Texas Tech walk-on turned Oklahoma star used a record-setting performance to lead the Sooners over the Red Raiders in a 66-59 shootout.
Mayfield completed 27-of-36 passes for 545 and a school record seven touchdowns. The 545 yards was the second-highest single-game performance in school history.
After the game, however, Mayfield wasn’t feeling the love.
Not only did the Texas Tech fans shower Mayfield in boos and chants of “F*** you, Baker!”, they also showered him with garbage as he was leaving the field. It was quite the disappointing scene.
It’s okay, though, because Mayfield and Oklahoma got the last laugh.
The No. 16 Sooners now sit at 5-2 on the season and return to action next weekend by playing host to the lowly Kansas Jayhawks.
