07 December, 2018, 17:56 | Author: Heidi Alvarez

However, the Alabama quarterback received a couple of positive signs Thursday as he beat out fellow Heisman finalist Kyler Murray for both the Walter Camp and Maxwell awards given to college football's player of the year. Tagovailoa won two player of the year awards, taking the Walter Camp and Maxwell awards. Earlier in the day, Murray was also announced as the AP Player of the Year.

On Friday, Murray will head to New York City for Heisman Trophy weekend. They are both finalists for the Heisman, along with Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins.

Tua Tagovailoa will have to wait until Saturday to find out if he's the victor of college football's top prize.

- Kentucky linebacker Josh Allen won the Chuck Bednarik award as the nation's top defensive player. His 4,527 yards of total offense are more than 68 of the country's other 129 teams, including six squads that are ranked in the AP Top 25 Poll. 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).
