During the show, ESPN interviewed both Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray and Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa to preview the Heisman Trophy ceremony.

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.

He also won AP National Player of the Year earlier in the day, and is one of the favorites to take home the Heisman Trophy on Saturday. Tagovailoa won the Maxwell over fellow finalists Murray and Grier.

For the 16th time in the last 19 years, a quarterback will win college football's most coveted individual award and that should not be a surprise this season. If Haskins wins for Ohio State, the university will surpass Notre Dame as the program to have produced the most Heisman winners.

Russia , Saudi Arabia and the United States have been vying for the position of top crude producer in recent years. However, he noted that all the participants will be listened to in order to arrive at a consensus on the issue.

Murray joins Baker Mayfield (2017), Josh Heupel (2000), Jason White (2003) and Sam Bradford (2008) as previous winners from Oklahoma.

Murray leads the country in total offense (4,945 yards), points responsible for (306) and passing efficiency (205.7).

Murray, a fourth-year junior, replaced last season's Heisman victor and had an even better season than his predecessor. He has also rushed for 892 yards and another 11 scores. He received a $4.6 million signing bonus from the A's with the expectation that this would be his last season on the gridiron.

Murray has thrown at least two touchdown passes in 12 of 13 games this season, and has thrown at least three TD passes in 10 contests.
