Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa wins Walter Camp, Maxwell awards

Murray Wins Davey O'Brien Award

A tight battle raged between Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa and Oklahoma's Kyler Murray.

Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa won the Maxwell Award on Thursday night.

Tagovailoa took home the Walter Camp Award as well as the Maxwell Award, both of which honor the nation's top player. This week, he has been named the AP Player of the Year and the Davey O'Brien Award victor, and he hopes to add the Heisman Trophy to his collection Saturday night in NY. Tagovailoa and Murray will be joined by Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins as finalists. The other finalists for the Walter Camp were Murray, Minshew, West Virginia quarterback Will Grier and Kentucky linebacker Josh Allen.

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

The Walter Camp victor has won the Heisman the last five seasons. Earlier in the day, Murray was also announced as the AP Player of the Year.

"I think he's been one of the best players in college football all year long", Alabama head coach Nick Saban said last week.

Murray and Tagovailoa will now head to New York City as Heisman trophy finalists, with the victor more uncertain than usual. As a result, Murray is the fifth Sooner to take home the award, joining Sam Bradford (2008), White (2003, '04) and running back Billy Sims (1978).

Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray has put together one of the greatest individual seasons in Sooners football history. He went on to become one of three 4,000-yard passers in the nation and threw for 40 touchdowns.

Murray was Mayfield's backup last season and won the starter's job in preseason practice.

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.
