Murray played insanely well this past season as he led the Sooners to a 12-1 record, a Big 12 championship and a spot in the college football playoff. He was also named the AP Player of the Year.
I don’t think anybody is overly surprised Murray is walking away with the most prestigious award in all of the sports. Earlier in the season, it looked like Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa would win the Heisman.
However, the Alabama quarterback got hurt against Georgia and Murray just exploded on the scene as he dominated down the stretch. It became almost a certainty after conference championship weekend the electric dual-threat quarterback would take the Heisman home.
Going into the playoff, Murray has thrown for 40 touchdowns and more than 4,000 yards. He will face Alabama and Tua in the semi-finals December 29.
