LOOK: Oklahoma puts Kyler Murray's stats next to Tua Tagovailoa's to lobby for Heisman
The two Heisman Trophy frontrunners are Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa and Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray.
While most non-FOX Sports employees consider Tagovailoa the heavy favorite to win the award, Murray’s numbers are also incredible this year.
As you can see below, Oklahoma tweeted out a comparison of Murray’s numbers to Tagovailoa’s as part of Murray’s Heisman bid:

Of course, the big number that isn’t included is attempts (or rating) as Tagovailoa has attempted far fewer passes than Murray and the high-flying Oklahoma offense.
Also, Murray has a loss on his resume, while Tagovailoa and the Tide are are undefeated. Who will win? That remains to be seen, but both are having fantastic seasons.
