Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa wins Walter Camp Award

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

When the announcement was made of the finalists for the 2018 Heisman Trophy, history was made as well.

Herbstreit will be in NY for the Heisman Trophy ceremony later tonight.

Tagovailoa received the Maxwell Award for player of the year while Murray was named the nation's top quarterback with the Davey O'Brien Award at the College Football Awards show in Atlanta.

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.

Murray, a 5-foot-10, 195-pound junior from Allen, Texas, won the award in his final year as a college athlete. The last Maxwell/Davey O'Brien split among quarterbacks came in 2016 when Lamar Jackson won the Maxwell Award and Deshaun Watson won the 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. No school has ever produced back-to-back Heisman Trophy winners who were quarterbacks. The past four Maxwell winners and past five Walter Camp winners have all gone on to win the Heisman.

Murray leads the country in total offense (4,945 yards), points responsible for (306) and passing efficiency (205.7).

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 was Mayfield's backup last season and won the starter's job in preseason practice.
