Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield shares inspirational message before return to Texas Tech

Former Texas Tech Red Raider quarterback Baker Mayfield is returning to his old digs this weekend, when his new team Oklahoma visits Jones AT&T stadium. Mayfield originally joined Texas Tech as a walk-on, then left over a controversy with his scholarship.

He transferred and joined the storied Oklahoma Sooner program as a result of the fallout.

Mayfield posted a photo of himself during pre-game preparations at the stadium today. He quotes Jeremiah 29:11 in the photo that he posted on Instagram.

Top it off with a #TheKidIsBack, which doesn’t appear in The King James version I used as a reference.

Mayfield is doing well leading the Sooners this season. He is completing passes at nearly 71 percent and has thrown for 15 touchdowns. The Sooners are 4-2,3-0 this season. Both of their losses have come to ranked opponents; Houston and Ohio State.

Still very much alive in the Big XII, Mayfield will be looking to exact a little revenge against his former squad and put his team in position for a conference championship.
