Baker Mayfield was up to his usual antics during the Rose Bowl on Monday. And it might finally have caught up with the talented Oklahoma quarterback.
In the moments after Georgia’s 54-48 double-overtime win against the Sooners, UGA’s Davin Bellamy was caught on camera shouting at the Heisman Trophy winner as he left the field.
The message was simple: “Humble yourself.”
DawgNation’s Seth Emerson sought out Bellamy after the game to get an explanation on exactly what he meant while dishing out that sage advice.
Meanwhile, in the other locker room, Mayfield was fielding questions from a huddle of media members when the topic of Bellamy’s advice came up. In a video captured by Edward Aschoff of ESPN.com, Mayfield seemingly acknowledged that he heard Bellamy’s message in the postgame scrum, and offered his thoughts on what was said.
“Yeah,” Mayfield said with a knowing glare while nodding his head in acknowledgement of what went down. “But they can say what they want. They won the game. That’s just how it is.”
The Sooners’ loss wasn’t because of a lack of production from Mayfield, who spent most of the week leading up to the game nursing an illness.
Mayfield threw for 287 yards and 2 touchdowns, and he also was on the receiving end of a touchdown pass.
