New head coach Lincoln Riley announced that Mayfield with have to serve 35 hours of community service and with attend an alcohol awareness course provided by the school. Mayfield, a Heisman Finalist, will not serve any kind of suspension, and will be suited up for the Sooner’s season opener against UTEP on September 2.
