AP top player Murray adds O’Brien; Tua wins Camp

Notre Dame and Ohio State have a one-player advantage over those two schools and have produced the most Heisman Trophy winners with seven players each. This has been the year of the quarterback, with FBS records for completion percentage, yards per pass and yards passing per game all within range as bowl season arrives. He commands an offense that may well be the best ever, and he's done it by being a formidable threat with both his right arm and his legs.

"I think he's been one of the best players in college football all year long", Alabama head coach Nick Saban said last week.

Oklahoma's Kyler Murray won the Davey O'Brien Award for the nation's top quarterback Thursday night at the Home Depot College Football Awards.


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. "I really believe that. No". Jackson won the Heisman that season.

The Sooners now have five winners have the Davey O'Brien Award, the most of any school. Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray was named the AP player of the year Wednesday, and was chosen as the Davey O'Brien Award victor as the nation's top quarterback today. He joins Henry (2015) and McCarron (2013) as the only Crimson Tide players to win the Maxwell Award. Mayfield won the award last season. He's also rushed for 892 yards and 11 scores. This is the sixth time in the past 15 seasons that different quarterbacks took home the Maxwell and Davey O'Brien awards, and in four of the previous five times the Heisman went to the O'Brien victor.

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.
