Baker Mayfield's Heisman House Commercial Will Upset Ohio State Fans

Baker Mayfield plants a flag in a sandwich for the Heisman House.

Last September, Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, after leading the Sooners to a huge road win against Ohio State, pulled an incredibly disrespectful move, planting his team's flag midfield in Ohio Stadium. It's a move that Mayfield apologized for after - but in reality, Sooners fans will forever appreciate. This week, it looks like Nissan will be paying homage to it.

Mayfield wound up winning the Heisman Trophy last year, leading his Sooners to the College Football Playoff, where they were narrowly ousted by Georgia. As a result, he's now part of Nissan's "Heisman House" campaign. His first commercial should debut this week.

In that commercial, former Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota is making a sandwich. Mayfield comes by, plants an Oklahoma flag in it and claims it.

It's a clever little bit, and it's one that will simultaneously upset Ohio State fans and excite Oklahoma supporters.

Nissan has yet to show it on television, but they posted it on YouTube. You can check it out below:

Mayfield, after a stellar senior season at Oklahoma, was drafted No. 1 overall by the Cleveland Browns this past April. At the moment, he's the backup to Tyrod Taylor, but the thought is that eventually he'll be given the keys to the offense.

Ohio State fans - is this too much? Or has enough time passed?
