Kyler Murray transferred to Oklahoma after his freshman season, sat out a season per transfer rules and then backed up Mayfield. The Oklahoma quarterback topped Tagovailoa for the Davey O'Brien Award given to the nation's top quarterback. And only five Heisman winners have failed to win AP Player of the Year since the award started in 1998. He also ranks second in completion percentage (.709; first among Power Five players).

The Allen, Texas native led the country with a 205.7 passer rating. 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. He needs 108 rushing yards to become just the second player in FBS history to throw for at least 4,000 and run for at least 1,000 in a season (Clemson's DeShaun Watson did it in 2015 with 4,109 passing and 1,105 rushing in 15 games). 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.
