On Saturday night, quarterbacks Tua Tagovailoa (Alabama), Kyler Murray (Oklahoma), and Dwayne Haskins (Ohio State) were in New York City to learn if they would become the winner of the Heisman Trophy Award.
The award has been given out annually since its creation back in 1935. Heading into the ceremony, Murray (-190) was a slight favorite to win the award over Tagovailoa (+150), with Haskins (+6000) being a HUGE underdog.
Well, the wait is over and the winner of the 2018 Heisman Trophy is…
Kyler Murray out of the University of Oklahoma.
In 2018, Murray completed 70.9% of his pass attempts for 4,053 yards and 40 touchdowns, while only throwing seven interceptions. He also carried the ball 123 times for 892 yards and 11 touchdowns.
