Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray Receives Davey O’Brien Award

  • Murray Wins Davey O'Brien Award

Alabama sophomore quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, one of three finalists for Saturday's Heisman Award, won the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award and the Maxwell Award for best all-around player during today's ESPN College Football Awards Show in Atlanta.

The future pro baseball player was honored with the Davey O'Brien Award on Thursday night at the College Football Awards Show.

Murray joins Baker Mayfield (2017), Josh Heupel (2000), Jason White (2003) and Sam Bradford (2008) as previous winners from Oklahoma. McCarron was the last Maxwell Award victor to not win the Heisman. He also ranks second in completion percentage (.709; first among Power Five players). Tagovailoa has thrown for 3,353 yards, 37 touchdowns to four interceptions and has completed almost 68 percent of his passes. Tagovailoa also broke Alabama's single-game touchdown records with six (five passing, one rushing) during Alabama's 52-21 victory over Auburn.

Murray won over Tagovailoa and Minshew for the O'Brien. Murray now holds the Football Bowl Subdivision (Division 1) record for best passer efficiency rating in a season. He had his school- and Big 12-record streak of eight games with at least three TD passes snapped in a win against Oklahoma State on November 10. That battle, which will rage on this weekend in NY for the Heisman, was won by Kyler Murray. They are both finalists for the Heisman, along with Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins.

Comey resisted, arguing the GOP-led investigation in the decision-making by the FBI and the Justice Department in 2016 and 2017 was politically motivated.

Murray will look to become OU's seventh Heisman victor and second straight (Mayfield). Haskins also is a finalist for the Heisman Trophy, which will be presented Saturday night in NY.

Murray was the most exciting player in college football this season and his success has many thinking he could reverse course and choose the NFL over the Major League Baseball.

Murray started his career at Texas A&M, where his father, Kevin Murray, set season and career passing records as the Aggies' quarterback in the mid-1980s.

"It's been a long journey with a lot of waiting, but I think it's all been worth it", Murray said.
