Heisman Trophy history: three quarterbacks of color

Murray Wins Davey O'Brien Award

Murray beat out Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa on 56 ballots submitted by AP college football poll voters and announced Thursday.

He is up against Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins and Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa for the Heisman Trophy which will be presented Saturday night. 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.

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. As a result, Murray is the fifth Sooner to take home the award, joining Sam Bradford (2008), White (2003, '04) and running back Billy Sims (1978). Murray has thrown for 4,053 yards and 40 touchdowns while rushing for over 800 yards and 11 touchdowns. Murray and Tagovailoa will face each other in the College Football Playoff, when No. 1 Alabama plays No. 4 Oklahoma at the Orange Bowl semifinal on December 29.

Murray, a fourth-year junior, replaced last season's Heisman victor and had an even better season than his predecessor.

Murray's 51 combined touchdowns are the most of anyone in college football. Murray now holds the Football Bowl Subdivision (Division 1) record for best passer efficiency rating in a season. 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.

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.
