WATCH | Baker Mayfield plants Oklahoma flag at midfield following Sooners' victory over Ohio State
Whether it was during the game or after it, Baker Mayfield didn't miss his mark.
Moments after lighting up Ohio State for 386 yards and 3 touchdowns in Oklahoma's 31-16 victory over the Buckeeys on Saturday night, the senior signal-caller grabbed an OU flag and sprinted for midfield. Once there, Mayfield planted the flag in the center of Ohio Stadium's Block O in a symbolic display of dominance -- and some would argue, disrespect.

Mayfield and his Sooners teammates proceeded to celebrate at The Horseshoe's 50-yard line as the OU marching band blared the school's fight song. Oklahoma's exuberant celebration came nearly a year to the day after the Buckeyes enjoyed a celebration of their own on the field of Memorial Stadium in Norman following their 45-24 victory over the Sooners in 2016.
As far as Mayfield is concerned, consider the favor repaid.
