On Tuesday night, ESPN hosted is awards show to honor the best college football players, coaches, and fanbases in the country. Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray took home the Davey O’Brien award as the nation’s top quarterback and Wisconsin’s Jonathan Taylor received the Doak Walker award given to the country’s best running back.
The awards continued to flow in throughout the night culminating in one of the most-prestigious awards handed out during the award show.
Alabama wide receiver Jerry Jeudy received the Biletnikoff Award given to the nation’s best wide receiver. Jeudy and quarterback Tua Tagovailoa were nightmare fuel for every team on Alabama’s schedule this season.
It all led to this award.
