OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The attorney for Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield says the school has filed an appeal to the NCAA to gain immediate eligibility for Texas Tech transfer.
After Mayfield decided to leave Texas Tech, the school ruled he should lose a year of eligibility upon transferring. Mayfield appealed at Tech, but it was denied.
Mayfield's family hired El Paso lawyer Jim Darnell to help with the appeal.
Mayfield played in eight games as a freshman walk-on last season at Tech, passing for 2,315 yards and 12 touchdowns.
He chose to transfer to Oklahoma in time for the spring game, and he completed all nine of his passes for 125 yards and two scores.
Oklahoma's backups are redshirt freshman Cody Thomas and freshman Justice Hansen.
