Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa, Oklahoma's Kyler Murray and Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins Jr. are all Heisman Trophy finalists, but the Sooners quarterback has bragging rights over his fellow signal-callers prior to Saturday's ceremony.
Eric Olson of the Associated Press reported Murray was named the AP's Player of the Year. Tagovailoa finished in second place, while Haskins came in third.
Murray continued a rich tradition of excellence for Oklahoma quarterbacks, as Baker Mayfield (2017), Sam Bradford (2008), Jason White (2003) and Josh Heupel (2000) also won this honor. The Sooners now have five AP Player of the Year awards and are the only team with more than two.
