Kyler Murray, the quintessential Oklahoma Sooners quarterback

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

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.

Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa carries the ball against The Citadel Nov. 17 in Tuscaloosa, Ala.

Murray added the Davey O'Brien Award as the nation's top quarterback Thursday night at ESPN's College Football Award Show at the Hall of Fame in Atlanta. Had a string of 194 passes without an interception starting in the third quarter of January's title game with Georgia.

Democrat withdraws concession in scandalous North Carolina race
Of the 1,300 or so absentee ballot requests Bladen County received, Dowless turned in nearly half of those on behalf of voters. Republican Mark Harris leads Democrat Dan McCready by about 900 votes, according to unofficial results in the 9th District .

Named the AP Player of the Year earlier Thursday, Murray leads the nation in total yards (school-record 4,945), points responsible for (306), passing efficiency rating (205.7; FBS record is 198.9), yards per pass attempt (11.9; FBS record is 11.1) and yards per completion (16.8, tied). "It's a special deal for me and hopefully I can continue to make my family and teammates proud". And only five Heisman winners have failed to win AP Player of the Year since the award started in 1998. Tagovailoa received 13 first-place votes (117 points) and Haskins was listed first on four ballots (55 points).

When the announcement was made of the finalists for the 2018 Heisman Trophy, history was made as well. The past four Maxwell winners and past five Walter Camp winners have all gone on to win the Heisman. Jackson won the Heisman that season. 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). No other school has had more than two AP Player of the Year winners. Tagovailoa has thrown for 3,353 yards, 37 touchdowns to four interceptions and has completed almost 68 percent of his passes.

"It's been a long journey with a lot of waiting, but I think it's all been worth it", Murray said.
