Mayfield suggests Murray Heisman pick

Former Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield is supporting the person, who took over for him this season. Mayfield said his Heisman pick is going towards Sooners dual-threat quarterback Kyler Murray.

As a past winner of the award, he gets a vote in the balloting. Those votes are not due until December 3rd.

Murray was Mayfield’s backup last season.

Murray is expected to be one of potentially three Heisman candidates for the award on December 8th. The others are the West Virginia Mountaineers quarterback Will Grier and the Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

Tagovailoa is expected to be the front-runner in the race. Murray’s Sooners defeated Grier’s Mountaineers on Friday night in a 59-56 thriller in Morgantown, West Virginia.

It would be the third straight year that a Sooners quarterback has attended the festivities in New York City on the second Saturday in the Big Apple. Mayfield attended the previous two years.

Murray is a junior, who has gone 216 of 306 for 3,674 passing yards. He also has 37 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

The 2018 MLB first-round draft pick by the Oakland Athletics also has 113 carries for 853 yards and an additional 10 touchdowns.
