Murray was the most exciting player in college football this season and his success has many thinking he could reverse course and choose the NFL over the Major League Baseball.

Oklahoma's Kyler Murray won The Associated Press college football Player of the Year on Thursday, becoming the second straight Sooners quarterback and fifth overall to win the award since it was established in 1998. Tagovailoa won two player of the year awards, taking the Walter Camp and Maxwell awards. But Oklahoma quarterback Murray won the Davey O'Brien Award as the nation's best quarterback, beating Tagovailoa out for that honor. Murray and Tua will battle it out once again for the Heisman, but Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins remains a dark-horse for the award. Tagovailoa won the Maxwell over fellow finalists Murray and Grier.

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. But after a campaign that could see him enshrined as college football royalty, Murray might want to try to have his cake and eat it too.

Friday, Murray was trying to enjoy his first trip to New York City.

The Walter Camp victor has won the Heisman the last five seasons. McCarron was the last Maxwell Award victor to not win the Heisman. The last Maxwell/Davey O'Brien split among quarterbacks came in 2016 when Lamar Jackson won the Maxwell Award and Deshaun Watson won the Davey O'Brien Award. Through 13 games, the sophomore has completed 67.7 percent of his passes for 3,353 yards and a school-record 37 touchdowns.

Kyler Murray's football career should be winding down over the next month as the Oklahoma Sooners quarterback is expected to join the Oakland Athletics in spring training in 2019. Tagovailoa has thrown for 3,353 yards, 37 touchdowns to four interceptions and has completed almost 68 percent of his passes. Mayfield won the award last season.

"It's been a long journey with a lot of waiting, but I think it's all been worth it", Murray said.
