The outsized personality of Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield was on full display Monday, when he noted that fellow Austin product Sam Ehlinger, the Texas Longhorns quarterback, never beat Lake Travis when he was at Westlake.
Texas high school football rivalries never die. And, indeed, Ehlinger went 0-3 against Mayfield’s alma mater, but given recent history, there are some other records that are more important. Let’s take a look:
1-2 — Mayfield’s career record against Texas, which includes losses at Texas Tech and Oklahoma.
0-1 — Mayfield’s career record against the Fayetteville PD, which infamously tackled the Oklahoma quarterback during an arrest over the summer.
0-1 — Mayfield’s home record against walk-on Iowa State quarterbacks.
0-1 — Mayfield’s ability to remember what happened on Saturday in Norman.
1-0 — Road record for Texas this season against Iowa State playing with an actual scholarship quarterback.
Undefeated — Ehlinger’s attempts at maturity.
Winless — Mayfield’s ability to avoid doing and saying petty, immature things.
The clear winners here? Texas and Sam Ehlinger. And the lesson? Baker Mayfield gonna Baker Mayfield, especially after suffering an extremely embarrassing loss.
