Baker Mayfield Posts Emotional Note To Instagram Ahead Of Return To Texas Tech

Baker Mayfield is back at Texas Tech, but this time, he's on the other sideline.

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield was originally a walk-on signal-caller at Texas Tech before controversy over his scholarship led him to transfer from the university. Saturday, for the first time, Mayfield will return to the stadium he once called home - Jones AT&T Stadium - wearing the jersey of the enemy.

Ahead of the contest, Mayfield posted a photo and a note to Instagram. In the note, he drops a Bible verse about hope. He finishes it off with a #TheKidIsBack hashtag. Check it out:

Texas Tech fans likely aren't hoping for an impressive return - instead, they'd rather see him walk out a loser. It should be an entertaining and emotional contest.
