Heisman Trophy: Meet Kyler Murray and the other finalists

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

While Tagovailoa was voted the best player, he didn't win best quarterback.

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). Tagovailoa won the Maxwell over fellow finalists Murray and Grier.

The last five winners of the Walter Camp have gone on to win the Heisman, but only five Heisman winners have failed to win Associated Press Player of the Year since the award started in 1998.

The Heisman Trophy victor will be announced Saturday night, December 8 in New York City.

Will college football's most famous trophy go to Tagovailoa?

The last five Walter Camp winners won the Heisman Trophy and the last four Maxwell winners have won the Heisman.

Tagovailoa has been the presumptive favorite for the Heisman throughout the season. Only twice since 2002 has the AP Player of the Year not won the Heisman, Nebraska's Ndamukong Suh in 2009 and Stanford's Christian McCaffrey in 2015.
