Oklahoma Fans Will Love This Kyler Murray-Baker Mayfield Stat

kyler murray plays at ohio state

It wasn't unfair to assume that Kyler Murray wouldn't be able to put up quite the same numbers as last year's Heisman winner, Baker Mayfield, but through three games they're virtually identical.

Last season, Mayfield had 1,033 passing yards and 10 touchdowns through three games.

Murray and the Sooners went to 3-0 with a win over Iowa State this afternoon. Through three games, he has 1,030 yards and 10 touchdowns.

ESPN's David Hale pointed out the amazing Kyler Murray-Baker Mayfield stat.

Via Twitter:

Mayfield was a bit more accurate in that stretch, completing almost 77-percent of his throws. Murray is at a very respectable 67-percent.

The Heisman winner also wasn't intercepted. Murray has thrown one.

Baker also knocked off Ohio State in Columbus. OU hasn't played anyone of that stature yet. Still, it is impossible to deny that Murray looks like the real deal.

He's already started to pop up on Heisman lists through the first few weeks of the season. Quarterback under Lincoln Riley seems like a prime position to challenge for that award, with the crazy numbers the Sooners have put up during his tenure as offensive coordinator and now head coach.
