Murray beat out Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa on 56 ballots submitted by AP college football poll voters and announced Thursday. It will be given out Saturday night in New York City. For the first time in 84 years, the top three vote-getters are quarterbacks of color: Oklahoma's Kyler Murray, Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa and Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins.

Murray joins Baker Mayfield (2017), Josh Heupel (2000), Jason White (2003) and Sam Bradford (2008) as previous AP Player of the Year winners from Oklahoma.
Murray leads the country in total offense (4,945 yards), points responsible for (306) and passing efficiency (205.7). He received a $4.6 million signing bonus from the A's with the expectation that this would be his last season on the gridiron. Through 13 games, the sophomore has completed 67.7 percent of his passes for 3,353 yards and a school-record 37 touchdowns.
Murray will look to become OU's seventh Heisman victor and second straight (Mayfield).
