Most people expected the Heisman Trophy to be awarded to Baker Mayfield on Saturday night, and for good reason, as the Oklahoma quarterback took home an astonishing amount of votes.

With 2,398 total votes, Mayfield captured 86 percent of the points available, the third-highest number of all time trailing only Troy Smith and Marcus Mariota. Mayfield received 83 percent of first-place votes on the night, with his 732 blowing away his closest competitor, Bryce Love, by over 650 votes.
