The Burlsworth Trophy winner has also rushed for 420 yards and seven touchdowns.
Mayfield will lead the No. 4 Sooners against top-ranked Clemson in the College Football Playoff on New Year’s Eve. The winner will play for the National Championship.
The three finalists were Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson, Alabama running back Derrick Henry and Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey.
