A few Ohio State fans mixed it up with the wrong guy.
In 2016, Ohio State embarrassed Oklahoma in its own stadium with a good old fashion butt-whooping. The Buckeyes dominated from the opening whistle, and ended the game with a 21-point win.
Fast forward a year later, and the outcome could not have been more different. Oklahoma took down Ohio State by a score of 31-16 at Ohio Stadium.
The story after the game, however, wasn’t the final score. On Freddie and Fritz, ESPN radio host Ian Fitzsimmons recalled a hilarious exchange between Baker Mayfield and a few Ohio State fans that wanted to give the Sooners’ QB a piece of their minds.
“Behind the Oklahoma bench, there were a group of Buckeye fans that were beyond over-served. I mean these dudes were lubed up. And right at halftime, right as Baker Mayfield’s getting treatment on his lower back, he comes out and these guys are just wearing him out. He finally — right before their first possession when Ohio State goes up 10-3 to start the second half and you’re going “uh-oh” — turns around and goes, ‘Get ready, I’m about to hand six on you bleeping bleepers.’ He leads them right down the field, the score’s tied at 10. He goes straight to the bench, stands up on the bench, and just lets the Buckeye fans behind him that were giving it to Baker… he turns at them and says, ‘You like that one? I’ve got three or four more of those coming up. Get ready.'”
Mayfield’s tremendous showing Saturday night vaulted him to the top of ESPN’s Heisman Watch. The Sooners star racked up 386 yards passing and three touchdowns.
Oh yeah, and he apparently “owns” Ohio Stadium.
Not bad for a former walk-on.
