Oklahoma football: Mark Andrews wins the 2017 Mackey Award

As victor of this year's Mackey Award, Andrews was voted the best tight end in college football. Andrews beat out Wisconsin senior Troy Fumagalli and Penn State senior Mike Gesicki for the award. The formal presentation will take place on Thursday during the Home Depot College Football Awards Show, to be broadcast by ESPN.

Andrews has been quarterbackBaker Mayfield's favorite target all season long.

Andrews recorded 906 yards receiving and 8 touchdown receptions on 58 receptions this season, leading his team in touchdown catches and is only second to Marquise Brown (981) in receiving yards. He's the first Big 12 tight end to win since Missouri's Chase Coffman won in 2008.

The Andrews award announcement kicks off what should be a very busy week for several Sooners.

Keep it here for complete coverage throughout OU's awards tour, culminating in New York City Saturday where Mayfield is one of three finalists for the Heisman Trophy.

Before that, the Sooner All-American quarterback and the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year could walk away with two more pieces of hardware.
