Texas Tech quarterback Baker Mayfield won the Big 12's Offensive Player of the Week honors after throwing for 413 yards and accounting for five touchdowns in Friday's 41-23 win over SMU.
After the game, though, Texas Tech players Bradley Marquez and Pete Robertson spilled the beans about when Mayfield stole the show at a freshmen talent show during fall camp.

I see a new touchdown celebration in Mayfield's future.
