The Heisman Trophy victor will be announced Saturday night, December 8 in New York City. The past five winners of the Walter Camp Award won the Heisman, while the past four Maxwell winners did the same.

If Murray wins, it would be OU's seventh Heisman Trophy. Tagovailoa and Murray will be joined by Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins as finalists. Murray's strong 2018 campaign has drawn comparisons to 2017 Heisman Trophy victor and former Oklahoma starter Baker Mayfield. The Oakland Athletics took Murray with the ninth pick in the Major League Baseball draft in June. 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). He threw for 4,053 yards and ranked first in yards per attempt (11.9), second in passing touchdowns (40) and second in completion percentage (71 percent). He also has rushed for 892 yards and 11 TDs.

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. Murray, who batted.296 with 10 home runs and 13 doubles in 50 games as the Sooners' center fielder, signed for almost $5 million, with the A's agreeing to let him return to school and play football this season. "All the hard work with my teammates has really paid off".
