The Oklahoma Sooners can punch their ticket to the College Football Playoff with a win over the TCU Horned Frogs in Saturday's Big 12 Championship Game at AT&T Stadium. 

Oklahoma quarterback and Heisman candidate Baker Mayfield said he's placing team goals ahead of individual honors during the final stretch of his college career.

"I didn't come back here to win a Heisman," the senior told reporters on Monday, per Brooke Pryor of The Oklahoman. "I came back to win a national title."

Mayfield may hoist both trophies before going pro in 2018.
