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. But right before the show started it was announced that Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa won the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award. The Oklahoma quarterback topped Tagovailoa for the Davey O'Brien Award given to the nation's top quarterback.

But, after an electrifying season that saw Murray eviscerate opposing defenses on his way to becoming a Heisman Trophy finalist, the 21-year-old might be eyeing a more exclusive path.

Murray lost out on the Maxwell award to Tagovailoa.

Murray was drafted by the A's in the first round of the 2018 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft and said he would give up football after playing this season with the Sooners.

Murray and Tua will also meet at the end of the month in the College Football Playoff.

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. The past five winners of the Walter Camp Award won the Heisman, while the past four Maxwell winners did the same.

Named the AP Player of the Year earlier Thursday, Murray leads the nation in total yards (school-record 4,945), points responsible for (306), passing efficiency rating (205.7; FBS record is 198.9), yards per pass attempt (11.9; FBS record is 11.1) and yards per completion (16.8, tied).

- Kentucky linebacker Josh Allen won the Chuck Bednarik award as the nation's top defensive player.

Murray joins Baker Mayfield (2017), Josh Heupel (2000), Jason White (2003) and Sam Bradford (2008) as previous winners from Oklahoma.

After a record-setting season, Murray is set to take home a list of awards, starting with this one. He received a $4.6 million signing bonus from the A's with the expectation that this would be his last season on the gridiron.
