Texas Tech fans threw water bottles at Baker Mayfield
Texas Tech fans have no love lost for Baker Mayfield.
Mayfield was once a quarterback for Tech, but after having scholarship and other issues with the Red Raiders, he walked on to the program at Oklahoma. Mayfield became a star for the Sooners in 2015 and is having a pretty good 2016 season as well.
In fact, Mayfield’s Sooners and Texas Tech combined to set many NCAA records in Saturday’s 66-59 shootout in Lubbock, which was won by Oklahoma. Mayfield was a star in the game, throwing for 545 yards and seven touchdowns, but Tech fans did not treat him kindly.
They taunted him with curse words:

And they threw things at him and his teammates:
Tech students throwing full water bottles at Baker Mayfield and OU players as they leave the field.

The hostility makes sense given that Mayfield is the one who got away.
