Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray has been right behind Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa in the Heisman Trophy race for most of the season, but that might be changing as the season comes to an end.

Murray, according to many college football analysts, has been making the Heisman Trophy race a lot closer than many imagined it would be.
