He may not be at Oklahoma anymore but that doesn’t stop him from keeping the rivalry alive.
“Westlake is a great program, but the two best quarterbacks to come out of there are Drew Brees and Nick Foles. Sam can stay down there in Texas,” Mayfield said. “That will stir the pot. He doesn’t like me and I hope he knows I don’t like him either.”quote from The Spun
Mayfield isn’t playing but the Red River Rivalry is alive and well in his eyes. Mayfield and Ehlinger only met once on the field with the Sooners coming away with a 29-24 win.
This isn’t the first jab between the two as Ehlinger made a comment out Orlando Brown’s combine performance. Mayfield responded defending his college offensive tackle.
Mayfield also called Ehlinger out for claiming Texas as being back after they beat Georgia in a New Years Six Bowl.
Mayfield is gone but the rivalry should be as good as ever in 2019.
