Baker Mayfield Punished By Oklahoma ... For Crotch-Grabbing

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield will not start Saturday's game against West Virginia as disciplinary action for his antics at Kansas, coach Lincoln Riley said Monday.

Mayfield was irked before playing the Jayhawks, when KU's captains refused to shake his hand during the pre-game coin toss. As part of his punishment, Riley has also stripped Mayfield of his captaincy for Saturday's game against the Mountaineers. With Mayfield out, Kyler Murray will start.

As the Oklahoma Sooners are hoping to clinch a spot in the College Football Playoffs, a head coach is sending a message to the team.

Riley got emotional when describing Mayfield, who is second in the nationa with 3,816 passing yards.

Stallone ever contacted by authorities or anyone else regarding this matter", his spokeswoman Michelle Bega said in a statement. DeLuca gave her a key to Stallone's room on the 27 floor and told her to go up as soon as she could, the police report said .

Mayfield apologized after the game. I am a competitive player but what I did is unacceptable so I apologize.

In the third quarter against Kansas, Mayfield was caught on camera grabbing his groin while shouting obscenities at the Jayhawaks' sideline. It's not the example I want to set.

Salmons said he took two mid-four-figure bets on Mayfield when he was 7-2 and 5-2 earlier in the season and, overall, the book was looking at a loss if the Sooners quarterback hoists the trophy.
