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.

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 has led Oklahoma to a 12-1 record, a Big 12 championship and a berth in the College Football Playoff semifinals, where the Sooners will face Alabama in the Orange Bowl. Tagovailoa won two player of the year awards, taking the Walter Camp and Maxwell awards. He beat out Tagovailoa and Washington State's Gardner Minshew. Had a string of 194 passes without an interception starting in the third quarter of January's title game with Georgia. Tagovailoa won the Maxwell over fellow finalists Murray and Grier.


"It's humbling and an honor to be named AP Player of the Year, to be mentioned in the same realm as a lot of great players, a lot of hall of famers", Murray said. Tagovailoa received 13 first-place votes (117 points) and Haskins was listed first on four ballots (55 points).

Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa and Oklahoma's Kyler Murray split four college football year-end awards Thursday, setting up a showdown for Saturday night when they contend for the Heisman Trophy.

The Walter Camp victor has won the Heisman the last five seasons. Tagovailoa has thrown for 3,353 yards, 37 touchdowns to four interceptions and has completed almost 68 percent of his passes. His 4,527 yards of total offense are more than 68 of the country's other 129 teams, including six squads that are ranked in the AP Top 25 Poll.
