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

For the past 82 years, the Heisman Trophy has been awarded to the most outstanding player in college football. McCarron was the last Maxwell Award victor to not win the Heisman.

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.

On Saturday night, Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins will be in NY for the Heisman Trophy ceremony.

If Murray wins, it would be OU's seventh Heisman Trophy.

Murray was Mayfield's backup last season and won the starter's job in preseason practice. Haskins, who led Ohio State to a 12-1 record and Big 10 championship, has a small following of fans who believe that he is deserving of the trophy come Saturday night. Kyler Murray transferred to Oklahoma after his freshman season, sat out a season per transfer rules and then backed up Mayfield. He is a finalist for the award with Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins and Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

Murray was selected ninth overall by the Oakland Athletics in the 2018 MLB Draft last summer and said he plans to stop playing football after the season in order to focus on his professional baseball career. He went on to become one of three 4,000-yard passers in the nation and threw for 40 touchdowns.

Murray beat out Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa and Washington State's Gardner Minshew for the honor.

Murray is the first FBS player to enter bowl season averaging at least 300.0 passing yards (311.8) and at least 60.0 rushing yards (68.6) per game. This season's finalists, each still with at least one more game, have passed for 11,986 yards and 124 touchdowns, completing 69.7 percent of their passes at 10.6 yards per attempt.
