The University of Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield could win the Heisman trophy this weekend.

All of OU's five previous Heisman winners have statues in Heisman Park on the west side of the football stadium.
After quickly reaching the original goal of 15-hundred signatures. The online petition now has a goal of 2500.
