Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield (6) sets up to pass in the second quarter against Clemson in the Capital One Orange Bowl at SunLife Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla., on Thursday, Dec. 31, 2015. Clemson won, 37-17. (Al Diaz/Miami Herald/TNS)The showdown between two high-profile quarterbacks has been a staple of college football for years. This Saturday will be no different. Another edition of high quality quarterbacks going head-to-head will be witnessed by thousands in the stands, and millions on television. Redshirt junior J.T. Barrett of Ohio State will be traveling to the home of the Sooners to square off with redshirt junior Baker Mayfield of Oklahoma in Norman at Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium.Both leaders of their respective offenses have hopes of earning the Heisman trophy this season after coming close before. Barrett had a quality 2014 season before breaking his ankle against Michigan, ultimately ending his campaign. Mayfield played well last season, but after an early season loss, the Austin, Texas, native could not earn enough votes to be named as the best player in college football.This year, both men are commanding teams that started the season with high hopes. The Sooners dropped their opener to a tough Houston team, but have managed to remain in the top 15 with a clubbing of the University of Louisiana-Monroe last Saturday. The Buckeyes are riding high after two blowout wins of less-than-quality opponents. For OSU, this game is about validating themselves as a top-tier team deserving of a spot in the College Football Playoff. For the Sooners, this game is a chance to regain momentum and make their case to be one of four teams to enter the college football equivalent of the postseason. Mayfield has looked like the quarterback that Bob Stoops has envisioned to lead his team, going 38-for-53 for 547 yards while slinging five touchdowns. Although a mobile quarterback, Mayfield has yet to show off his legs this season, losing a yard on his 13 total carries.Barrett has also enjoyed success this season, going 35-for-53 passing with 498 yards and six touchdowns. Although he has produced well in the passing game, Barrett has gained 85 yards on the ground with three touchdowns, making him a dynamic threat to any defense. Growing up less than three hours apart from each other, both men enjoyed successful high school careers. Mayfield is a former three-star recruit, while Barrett is a former four-star, dual-threat recruit.The paths to starting quarterback have been starkly different for each player. After a successful season at Texas Tech, Mayfield was blocked from transferring to Oklahoma in a confusing and drawn-out affair with his former team.For Barrett, the path to stardom was much smoother. After having a desire to attend Texas, he received offers from the Buckeyes, and found himself in the starting role by his redshirt freshman year.Saturday will mark the third time the teams have met, with the all-time record at 1-1 between the two. Each quarterback has the chance to solidify their legacies on one of the grandest stages of the year.With the possibility of a shootout looming, one thing remains certain about both quarterbacks. Both Meyer and Stoops trust their quarterbacks to take their respective programs to the peak of college football. read more

Kolkata: State power minister Sobhandeb Chattopadhyay on Wednesday said that he would hold a meeting with the CESC officials to address a disparity in the cost of electricity supplied by CESC and the West Bengal State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (WBSEDCL).While responding to a question raised by the CPI-M MLA Sujan Chakraborty in the Assembly, Chattopadhyay told the house that cost of electricity in the state is Rs 7.12 per unit, which much lesser than various other states. During his speech, the minister also said that he would take up the issue of cost difference with the CESC. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataHe mentioned in the House that WBSEDCL charges its customers at Rs 7.12 per unit while the CESC charges a customer Rs 7.31. When asked about the reason for the difference in the pricing, the minister assured the House that he would hold talks with the top CESC officials in this regard. The Opposition MLA also pointed out that CESC supplies electricity to lesser number of people than WBSEDCL and hence the transmission and distribution costs of the CESC should have been much lesser. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateDuring his speech, Chattopadhya said that Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) fixes the cost of the electricity in the state. He also complained that coal cess has been increased and freight cost was also rising resulting in the hike of cost of power generation. It may be mentioned here that the power minister on Tuesday accused the Centre of not issuing environmental clearances to the state to commence coal mining activities in allotted mines. If the state had received the clearances, it would have been able to produce more coal for the captivate purposes and reduce cost power generation. The power minister also pointed out that electricity is provided to the farmers in much cheaper rate following the Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s instruction. Farmers have to pay Rs 3.78 for consumption of every unit. He also said that the electricity bill for the farmers would be reduced up to Rs 2.42 per unit if the farmers work during night. read more
