Love would win the Doak Walker, which is given to the nation's top running back, beating out Barkley and Wisconsin's Jonathan Taylor.

The Sooners' QB threw for 4,340 yards this season to go with 41 touchdowns and just five interceptions. Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson, the other finalist and last year's Heisman Trophy victor, was third in the award announced Thursday.

Mayfield, Love and Jackson are also the finalists for the Heisman, which will be handed out Saturday night in NY. Not only has he put up video game-like numbers for Oklahoma, but he led the Sooners to a Big 12 title, 12-1 record and a spot in the College Football Playoff.

Mayfield beat out another Big 12 quarterback in Oklahoma State's Mason Rudolph, and Ohio State's J.T. Barrett for the Davey O'Brien Award. "I am so appreciative of Mr. Hornung and the Louisville Sports Commission for selecting me for this very special honor". "I'm on this awards trip right now with a lot of great players from OU and other schools, and every one of them deserves to be recognized".

Mayfield was named the Walter Camp Player of the Year on Thursday.

Mayfield won the AP Player of the Year, the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award, the Davey O'Brien Award and the Maxwell Award on Thursday.
