Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray is named the AP Player of the Year

Kyler Murray transferred to Oklahoma after his freshman season, sat out a season per transfer rules and then backed up Mayfield.

Tagovailoa, a 2017 Saint Louis School graduate, beat out Murray, Washington State quarterback Gardner Minshew II, West Virginia quarterback Will Grier and Kentucky linebacker Josh Allen for the Camp Award.

"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.

Kyler Murray is The Associated Press college football Player of the Year, the second straight Oklahoma quarterback and fifth overall to win the award since it was established in 1998. Murray took home the Davey O'Brien Award, which goes to the best quarterback. Tagovailoa won two player of the year awards, taking the Walter Camp and Maxwell awards.

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

Key stats: Passed for 3,353 yards and 37 touchdowns against four interceptions.

No. 4-ranked OU, which behind Murray leads the nation in points per game (49.5), yards per game (577.9) and yards per play (8.7; FBS record is 8.6), will make its 52nd bowl appearance when it takes on No. 1 Alabama in the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Capital One Orange Bowl on December 29 at 7 p.m. CT. The past four Maxwell winners and past five Walter Camp winners have all gone on to win the Heisman. 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.

The skinny: Opened the season as the betting favorite for the Heisman despite not starting a game, thanks largely to a performance in the national title game that included the 41-yard winning touchdown pass in overtime.
