Baker Mayfield didn’t miss much time versus West Virginia.

After last week’s antics versus Kansas, Baker Mayfield was subsequently suspended and stripped of his captain’s duties for today’s Senior Day matchup versus West Virginia. At the time, it was unclear how long the suspension would be, but we got our answer today:
