If college football teams should know one thing by now about Baker Mayfield, it’s that’s you don’t want to add to the chips on his shoulders.
Kansas must have missed the memo.
During the meeting between team captains ahead of Oklahoma’s matchup with the Jayhawks, Mayfield went to the Kansas captains to shake their hands. But the Jayhawks didn’t react to the offer, keeping their hands behind their backs. Even the children on the field wouldn’t shake Mayfield’s hand, prompting him to clap enthusiastically.

Mayfield, seemingly fueled by passion toward those who have wronged him, is the Heisman Trophy frontrunner. He leads the nation in passing efficiency and completion percentage. He entered Saturday second in the FBS in passing yards.
You don’t want to give Mayfield a reason to dislike you. Kansas is 1-9, so there was already every reason to believe Mayfield was going to have his way Saturday.
Now, the Jayhawks provided even more fuel.
