The senior quarterback took home some major hardware during college football's annual award night as he was named the Davey O'Brien Award victor, Maxwell Offensive Player of the Year and Walter Camp Player of the Year. His 129 career touchdown passes are second-most in Big 12 history, five behind Graham Harrell's record of 134.

Some of the nation's top college football players were honored Thursday night, as the Home Depot College Football Awards ceremony was held at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta. Mayfield will very likely win the Heisman on Saturday night over Stanford running back Bryce Love and Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson, the player who won the Heisman a year ago. Mayfield's win marks the 4th win in Oklahoma history, tying BYU for most Davey O'Brien winners (Sam Bradford won in 2008 and Jason White won in 2003 and 2004).

Georgia linebacker Roquan Smith won the Butkus Award, given to the best linebacker. Fitzpatrick also won the Jim Thorpe Award, which is given to the nation's top defensive back, becoming just the third player to do so. Oklahoma State wide receiver James Washington won the Biletnikoff Award, which is given to the best wide receiver.

Below is the list of award winners announced during Thursday's ceremony. The University of Iowa won the Disney Spirit Award.

Although the Heisman Trophy victor won't be announced until Saturday, it will likely be a formality as Mayfield has dominated just about every aspect of the game this season.
