Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa won the Maxwell Award on Thursday night.
When the announcement was made of the finalists for the 2018 Heisman Trophy, history was made as well.
Tagovailoa is Alabama's second Walter Camp Award victor, joining running back Derrick Henry in 2015.
Murray, a 5-foot-10, 195-pound junior from Allen, Texas, won the award in his final year as a college athlete.
Earlier this week, Tagovailoa was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Year. Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr. was third. The Davey O'Brien Award honors the nation's top quarterback each year.

The video surfaced last week and the Chiefs acted quickly, cutting Hunt lose on Friday. Hunt had 824 rushing yards and seven touchdowns through 11 games in 2018.
While an Oklahoma quarterback sets his sights on the College Football Playoffs, he has another prestigious award to add to his collection. If Haskins wins for Ohio State, the university will surpass Notre Dame as the program to have produced the most Heisman winners.
Murray joins Baker Mayfield (2017), Josh Heupel (2000), Jason White (2003) and Sam Bradford (2008) as previous AP Player of the Year winners from Oklahoma. 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. And only five Heisman winners have failed to win AP Player of the Year since the award started in 1998. He's also rushed for 892 yards and 11 scores. He received a $4.6 million signing bonus from the A's with the expectation that this would be his last season on the gridiron.
Behind Murray, the University of Oklahoma has the top rated offense in the country, averaging over 8 yard per play.
Murray didn't go home empty-handed either.
