It's been an eventful three days for Oklahoma football to close out its regular season.

A Big 12 championship was clinched on Saturday followed by the announcement that the Sooners would be playing in the Sugar Bowl on Sunday. Now, per Monday night's announcement on ESPN, Oklahoma will have two players traveling to New York as Heisman finalists in quarterback Baker Mayfield and wide receiver Dede Westbrook.

Oklahoma's Twitter account posted a video of Westbrook's reaction to hearing the news Monday night:

The highlight of the short clip comes when Westbrook Facetimes his fellow finalist teammate in Mayfield. Mayfield, who finished fourth in the voting last season, asks Westbrook if he planned his victory speech yet only for Westbrook to respond with, "No, I'm there to spectate you."

Oklahoma tweeted out a similar video of Mayfield's reaction to the announcement shortly after:

The two Sooners had plenty of chemistry on the field this season, connecting for 16 touchdowns already heading into bowl play. Now they'll both have an opportunity at taking home college football's highest individual honor.
