Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield has strong thoughts about Ohio State walking out of Norman with a 21-point win last season.

Speaking to reporters Monday following practice, Mayfield described the sight of Buckeye football players singing “Carmen Ohio” – the school's alma mater – following the game as “embarrassing.”

“Everybody that was here for last year's huge loss definitely remembers that. And we talked about it during camp,” the Tulsa World quoted Mayfield as saying. “We've never been here for a team to sing their fight song on our field. Quite frankly it's just embarrassing. It's embarrassing.”

Mayfield also remembers that little thing Ohio State fans do when they take over a stadium on the road:

“We let down our fans, our coaches and everybody that supports our program to allow them to sing O-H-I-O on our field. And their fans were louder than ours and rightfully so. They had more reason to be louder. But, it's different year. Obviously we're still thinking about that and it hurts. But we've still gotta go play football.”

The Buckeyes and Sooners clash at 7:30 p.m. Saturday night on ABC.
