​It should be a tight race, but Oklahoma Sooners quarterback ​Kyler Murray has a great chance to come away with the Heisman Trophy this weekend.


That would make it back-to-back years an Oklahoma quarterback won the award, joining ​Baker Mayfield. It would be the fourth time it's ever happened where the winner in consecutive years came from the same school.

The last pair to do this were USC teammates, quarterback Matt Leinart in 2004 and running back Reggie Bush in 2005, which was later vacated.


The other two times this happened was back in 1945 with Army fullback Doc Blanchard and in 1946 with Army halfback Glenn Davis, as well as in 1936 with Yale tight end Larry Kelley and in 1937 with Yale halfback Clint Frank.

​​You can never guarantee these things, but there's a great case to be made that Murray should be the runaway winner. 


However, Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is getting a serious look as well. Don't forget about Dwayne Haskins either.
