Kansas has really made quarterback Baker Mayfield unhappy.
After Oklahoma scored a touchdown to go up 28-3 in the third quarter Saturday, Mayfield took off his helmet, grabbed his groin and shouted “[expletive] you” across the field.
The animosity between Mayfield and Kansas got off to an early start when Kansas players didn’t shake Mayfield’s hand at the pregame coin toss. The lack of reciprocation caused Mayfield to mock clap in front of the Jayhawks.
Mayfield apologized after the game, won 41-3 by the No. 4 Sooners.
Mayfield: I apologize not just to the Kansas people, but the #Sooners fans .. I really do mean that. No disrespect to Kansas athletics … the position that I'm in, I have to lead by example and I did not do that.

Mayfield also apologized at a news conference two days after planting an Oklahoma flag at midfield of Ohio State’s stadium following the Sooners’ Week 2 win.
