Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray has put together one of the greatest individual seasons in Sooners football history.

Murray is having a historic season. He commands an offense that may well be the best ever, and he's done it by being a formidable threat with both his right arm and his legs. It goes to the player of the year.

All three are finalists for the Heisman Trophy, which will be presented Saturday night in NY.

Earlier this week, Tagovailoa was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Year. "I really believe that. No".

This year's Heisman Trophy ceremony will be aired on ESPN at 7 p.m. CT from the New York Marriott Marquis in Times Square. He's also rushed for 892 yards and 11 scores.

Herbstreit will be in NY for the Heisman Trophy ceremony later tonight. If Haskins wins for Ohio State, the university will surpass Notre Dame as the program to have produced the most Heisman winners. McCarron was the last Maxwell Award victor to not win the Heisman.

Murray was Mayfield's backup last season and won the starter's job in preseason practice.

As for raw numbers, Murray has thrown for 4,053 yards, 40 touchdowns and just seven interceptions while completing 71 percent of his passes.

Murray started his career at Texas A&M, where his father, Kevin Murray, set season and career passing records as the Aggies' quarterback in the mid-1980s. "All the hard work with my teammates has really paid off".
