Kyler Murray, the quintessential Oklahoma Sooners quarterback

OU’s Kyler Murray named The Associated Press College Football Player of the Year

Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa carries the ball against The Citadel Nov. 17 in Tuscaloosa, Ala. However, the Alabama quarterback received a couple of positive signs Thursday as he beat out fellow Heisman finalist Kyler Murray for both the Walter Camp and Maxwell awards given to college football's player of the year.

9 overall pick by the Oakland A's in last summer's Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, is the second Sooner in two years to win the O'Brien Award, joining Baker Mayfield.

On Thursday night, the nation's best college football players gathered for an awards show of epic proportions.

Murray, Tagovailoa and Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins are the three finalists for the Heisman Trophy.

Murray, a 5-foot-10, 195-pound junior from Allen, Texas, won the award in his final year as a college athlete.

"I think he's been one of the best players in college football all year long", Alabama head coach Nick Saban said last week. "It's a special deal for me and hopefully I can continue to make my family and teammates proud".

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

Murray and Tagovailoa will now head to New York City as Heisman trophy finalists, with the victor more uncertain than usual. McCarron was the last Maxwell Award victor to not win the Heisman.
