During the Sooners’ 41-17 victory over TCU in the Big 12 Championship Game, Mayfield passed Sam Bradford in career passing efficiency, taking the former Heisman winner’s place atop FBS record books. Mayfield’s passing efficiency <a href=""></a> of 176.03 is narrowly ahead <a href="">Martin St. Louis Jersey</a> of Bradford’s 175.62.

In addition to winning a Big 12 title in each of his three seasons as a Sooners player, Mayfield also has posted passing efficiencies above 170 every year. He set a single-season record for passing efficiency in 2016; he is on pace to break his own record this season. His 203.76 mark in 2017 would make him the first FBS quarterback with a pass efficiency above 200.

Pass efficiency is the collegiate version of passer rating, measuring a quarterback based on his yardage, completion percentage, touchdowns and interceptions. Mayfield leads the FBS in completion percentage (71.0) and is second in passing yardage (4,340) and touchdown passes (41). <a href="">Shea Weber Jersey</a> He was intercepted 5 times.

The passing efficiency mark wasn’t Mayfield’s only impressive statistical accomplishment Saturday. Mayfield became the sixth Big 12 quarterback to <a href=""></a> have 1,000 career completions. He broke off a career-long 59-yard run. He earned Big 12 Championship Game Most Outstanding Player honors with his 4-touchdown performance.

Perhaps most important, Mayfield’s touchdown passes also gave him a career-high 41, surpassing the mark NBC Sports’ Dan Patrick gave Mayfield to introduce him to Justin Timberlake. Not only is Mayfield an FBS record holder but he also could end as a backup dancer for Timberlake.

Mayfield is clearly living his best life.
