Kyler Murray, the quintessential Oklahoma Sooners quarterback

Kyler Murray, the quintessential Oklahoma Sooners quarterback

While an Oklahoma quarterback sets his sights on the College Football Playoffs, he has another prestigious award to add to his collection. And only five Heisman winners have failed to win AP Player of the Year since the award started in 1998. Had a string of 194 passes without an interception starting in the third quarter of January's title game with Georgia.

The Walter Camp victor has won the Heisman the last five seasons.

Murray and Tagovailoa will then face each other in the College Football Playoff, when No. 1 Alabama plays No. 4 Oklahoma at the Orange Bowl semifinal on December 29.

The O'Brien Award was initially given to the top player in the Southwest before going to a quarterback-only honor in 1981.

- Alabama's Jerry Jeudy won the Biletnikoff Award as the nation's top wide receiver.

Murray joins Baker Mayfield (2017), Josh Heupel (2000), Jason White (2003) and Sam Bradford (2008) as previous winners from Oklahoma. Tagovailoa has thrown for 3,353 yards, 37 touchdowns to four interceptions and has completed almost 68 percent of his passes. He also has rushed for 892 yards and 11 TDs.

Murray is the first FBS player to enter bowl season averaging at least 300.0 passing yards (311.8) and at least 60.0 rushing yards (68.6) per game.

Murray has thrown at least two touchdown passes in 12 of 13 games this season, and has thrown at least three TD passes in 10 contests. The other finalists for the Walter Camp were Murray, Minshew, West Virginia quarterback Will Grier and Kentucky linebacker Josh Allen. "All the hard work with my teammates has really paid off".
