Heisman Trophy history: three quarterbacks of color

Heisman Trophy history: three quarterbacks of color

And only five Heisman winners have failed to win AP Player of the Year since the award started in 1998. Murray and Tagovailoa will face each other in the College Football Playoff, when No. 1 Alabama plays No. 4 Oklahoma at the Orange Bowl semifinal on December 29.

Or will the Heisman go to Murray?

Haskins, a third-year sophomore, stepped in after the departure of a four-year starter and smashed Ohio State and Big Ten passing records.

Winning both the Walter Camp and Maxwell awards is an encouraging sign for Tagovailoa.

9 overall pick by the Oakland A's in last summer's Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, is the second Sooner in two years to win the O'Brien Award, joining Baker Mayfield. No other school has had more than two players win AP Player of the Year.

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

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.

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.

But the North has rejected demands for what it calls "unilateral" disarmament, and has instead sought unspecified reciprocal U.S. measures in a gradual process.

"We talked about just having your family out here, stuff like that, kind of soaking it all in and having fun with it", Murray said.

I think NBCSports may be confused, Brian.

If Murray wins, the Sooners would become the first program to have back-to-back quarterbacks win the award and the fifth school in FBS history to have consecutive Heisman winners, joining USC's Matt Leinart (2004) and Reggie Bush (2005, though later vacated), Army's Doc Blanchard (1945) and Glenn Davis (1946), Yale's Larry Kelley (1936) and Clinton Frank (1937) and Ohio State's Archie Griffin (1974-75), the only individual two-time victor. 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.
