A tight battle raged between Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa and Oklahoma's Kyler Murray.

Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray split top honors on a college football awards night that only has momentum building towards Saturday night's Heisman Trophy announcement.

Tagovailoa is Alabama's second Walter Camp Award victor, joining running back Derrick Henry in 2015.

On Thursday night, the nation's best college football players gathered for an awards show of epic proportions. He joins Henry (2015) and McCarron (2013) as the only Crimson Tide players to win the Maxwell Award.

Murray beat out Tagovailoa and Washington State's Gardner Minshew II for the Davey O'Brien.

Trump Says Trade Talks With China 'Going Very Well'
China's ultimate goal during the 90-day trade talks is to remove all US tariffs imposed on Chinese goods, Gao said. China had been the largest purchaser of US soybeans, buying $12.25 billion worth of that product in 2017.

Kyler Murray has put together one of the greatest individual seasons in college football history. "It's a special deal for me and hopefully I can continue to make my family and teammates proud".

The last five winners of the Walter Camp have gone on to win the Heisman, but only five Heisman winners have failed to win AP Player of the Year since the award started in 1998. Tagovailoa received 13 first-place votes (117 points) and Haskins was listed first on four ballots (55 points). Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield won the Davey O'Brien and Maxwell awards on his way to the 2017 Heisman Trophy. Jackson won the Heisman that season.

The Allen, Texas, product has completed 241 of 340 passes this year for 4,053 yards and 40 touchdowns to seven interceptions. He also has rushed for 892 yards and 11 TDs.

Murray is the first FBS player to enter bowl season averaging at least 300.0 passing yards (311.8) and at least 60.0 rushing yards (68.6) per game.
