Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray Receives Davey O’Brien Award

Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray Receives Davey O’Brien Award

Tua Tagovailoa will have to wait until Saturday to find out if he's the victor of college football's top prize.

He beat out Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins for the Associated Press' honor, but he will still face off against them in the race for the Heisman Trophy. Tagovailoa won two player of the year awards, taking the Walter Camp and Maxwell awards. This week, he has been named the AP Player of the Year and the Davey O'Brien Award victor, and he hopes to add the Heisman Trophy to his collection Saturday night in NY.

While Tagovailoa was voted the best player, he didn't win best quarterback.

This year's Heisman Trophy ceremony will be aired on ESPN at 7 p.m. CT from the New York Marriott Marquis in Times Square. Murray was named The Associated Press college football Player of the Year, Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018.

The last five winners of the Walter Camp have gone on to win the Heisman, but only five Heisman winners have failed to win AP Player of the Year since the award started in 1998. Earlier in the day, Murray was also announced as the AP Player of the Year.

Murray joins Baker Mayfield (2017), Josh Heupel (2000), Jason White (2003) and Sam Bradford (2008) as previous winners from Oklahoma. The Oakland Athletics took Murray with the ninth pick in the Major League Baseball draft in June.

After a record-setting season, Murray is set to take home a list of awards, starting with this one.

Key stats: Passed for 3,353 yards and 37 touchdowns against four interceptions. He has also rushed for 892 yards and another 11 scores. Kyler Murray transferred to Oklahoma after his freshman season, sat out a season per transfer rules and then backed up Mayfield.
