Baker Mayfield and Dede Westbrook submit their entry for touchdown of the year

He might not be the Heisman favorite, but Oklahoma wide receiver Dede Westbrook deserves to be in New York for the finalist ceremony. His quarterback, Baker Mayfield, ain't too shabby, either.

Together, they connected for the best touchdown pass of Week 11 -- and maybe of the year.

Already leading Baylor 21-10 in the third quarter, Mayfield tossed a 40-yard bomb to Westbrook, who high-pointed the ball for a touchdown.

It's an incredible individual effort by Westbrook, who was well-covered, but Mayfield's pocket awareness and "jump pass" are underrated parts of this play.

The touchdown gave Westbrook his 14th receiving score of the season -- all since the start of October. It's his fifth multi-touchdown game of the year. As Tom Fornelli will vouch, they don't call him TeDe Westbrook for nothing.

The Sooners might be out of the playoff conversation for all intents and purposes, but you'd be hard-pressed to find many teams playing better than they are at the moment.
