Murray beat out Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa on 56 ballots submitted by AP college football poll voters and announced Thursday.

All three are finalists for the Heisman Trophy, which will be presented Saturday night in NY.

The last five winners of the Walter Camp have gone on to win the Heisman, but only five Heisman winners have failed to win Associated Press Player of the Year since the award started in 1998. He joins Henry (2015) and McCarron (2013) as the only Crimson Tide players to win the Maxwell Award.

That didn't stop one Ohio State fan from calling out Kirk Herbstreit on Twitter for ESPN's "typical Ohio State and Big Ten disrespect". 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.

Cavaliers trade Korver to Jazz
Korver had 22 points on 6-of-9 3-point shooting in a recent loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves . For his career, he has averaged 9.9 ppg on 44.4 percent shooting and 43.2 percent from deep.

No. 4-ranked OU, which behind Murray leads the nation in points per game (49.5), yards per game (577.9) and yards per play (8.7; FBS record is 8.6), will make its 52nd bowl appearance when it takes on No. 1 Alabama in the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Capital One Orange Bowl on December 29 at 7 p.m. CT. No school has ever produced back-to-back Heisman Trophy winners who were quarterbacks.

The last five Walter Camp winners won the Heisman Trophy and the last four Maxwell winners have won the Heisman.

Named the AP Player of the Year earlier Thursday, Murray leads the nation in total yards (school-record 4,945), points responsible for (306), passing efficiency rating (205.7; FBS record is 198.9), yards per pass attempt (11.9; FBS record is 11.1) and yards per completion (16.8, tied). 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.

Murray didn't go home empty-handed either. Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield won the Davey O'Brien and Maxwell awards on his way to the 2017 Heisman Trophy. This has been the year of the quarterback, with FBS records for completion percentage, yards per pass and yards passing per game all within range as bowl season arrives.
