  • Murray Wins Davey O'Brien Award

For the 16th time in the last 19 years, a quarterback will win college football's most coveted individual award and that should not be a surprise this season. The Oklahoma quarterback topped Tagovailoa for the Davey O'Brien Award given to the nation's top quarterback. And only five Heisman winners have failed to win AP Player of the Year since the award started in 1998. Although he's a long-shot to win the award, Haskins deserves to be mentioned among the college football elite after a tremendous season.

Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray split top honors on a college football awards night that only has momentum building towards Saturday night's Heisman Trophy announcement.

Murray joins Baker Mayfield (2017), Josh Heupel (2000), Jason White (2003) and Sam Bradford (2008) as previous winners from Oklahoma.

Haskins, a third-year sophomore, stepped in after the departure of a four-year starter and smashed Ohio State and Big Ten passing records. Tagovailoa won two player of the year awards, taking the Walter Camp and Maxwell awards. His 4,527 yards of total offense are more than 68 of the country's other 129 teams, including six squads that are ranked in the AP Top 25 Poll. He also added 190 yards and five more touchdowns on the ground, giving him the single-season school record for most combined touchdowns with 42.

GOP senators accuse Trump Administration of covering up killing
The Senate ultimately passed that measure by a very wide margin, and debate on the resolution itself is expected to begin soon. Human rights groups say the war is wreaking havoc on the country and subjecting civilians to indiscriminate bombing.

The two quarterbacks are also expected to have a higher passing efficiency than former Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield's record set during his Heisman Trophy-winning season a year ago.

"I'd like to do both (football and baseball) if possible", Murray told reporters Friday, via Sports Illustrated.

Brian Hartline, the current wide receivers coach for the Buckeyes who played seven seasons in the National Football League, had to teach the media on Twitter about why Haskins should be the frontrunner for the award.
