Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield reportedly loses his cool on sidelines nearing halftime against Kansas State

Ninth-ranked Oklahoma football trails Kansas State 21-10 at halftime, and Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield reportedly isn’t in the best of spirits.

Oklahoma football radio reported that Mayfield was part of a “heated meeting” and lost his temper on the sidelines shortly before the two teams entered halftime. The Sooners were held to a field goal in the final minutes of the first half after failing to score on a wildcat formation at the goal line.

Mayfield threw for 148 yards with a touchdown and interception in the half.

Mayfield wasn’t the only unhappy Oklahoma player. Oklahoma football radio reported that offensive lineman Orlando Brown was “yelling” at his teammates to be more physical.

Oklahoma was outgained by Kansas State, 316-229, in total yards of offense during the first half. That included a whopping 256-81 deficit in rushing yards to the Wildcats. Kansas State quarterback Alex Delton erupted for 138 rushing yards in the half.

Oklahoma had not trailed at halftime at any point in the season before Saturday. The Sooners were tied at halftime with Ohio State on Sept. 9.
