According to a press release from Mike Houck-Assistant AD/Strategic Communications, University of Oklahoma,  as the pleas have been entered in the court matter involving Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, the OU Athletics Department today announced sanctions in addition to what is required as part of the case.


Under those sanctions, Mayfield will be required to participate in university alcohol education and 35 hours of community service, some of which will include working with law enforcement, before the fall semester begins.


"As I stated earlier, I could not be more disappointed in my actions and the embarrassment they caused for my university and team," Mayfield said. "I am anxious to fulfill the responsibilities that have been set and am continuing to dedicate myself to the high standard that everyone rightfully expects from someone in my position."


OU head football coach Lincoln Riley added, "Baker has expressed regret for his actions and backed up his apology by being a model leader in our program. He has learned from his mistake and will continue to grow from it. The coaching staff and team has every confidence in him going forward."
