Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray wins Davey O'Brien Award

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

Tua Tagovailoa will have to wait until Saturday to find out if he's the victor of college football's top prize.

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. The past five winners of the Walter Camp Award won the Heisman, while the past four Maxwell winners did the same. "It's a special deal for me and hopefully I can continue to make my family and teammates proud". The Davey O'Brien Award honors the nation's top quarterback each year.

- Texas A&M punter Braden Mann won the Ray Guy Award. Earlier in the day, Murray was also announced as the AP Player of the Year. No other school has had more than two players win AP Player of the Year. He joins Henry (2015) and McCarron (2013) as the only Crimson Tide players to win the Maxwell Award.

The A's selected Murray with the No. 9 overall pick in the amateur draft last June. 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).
