Sport Right now, Kyler Murray’s Heisman vote would ‘probably be Joe Burrow’
Hurts might be a better Oklahoma QB than Mayfield, Murray
Comparing Jalen Hurts' Heisman campaign with Baker Mayfield's and Kyler Murray's winning seasons.
Well, this has the potential to be awkward.
Last year, Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray claimed the 2018 Heisman Trophy before leaving for the 2019 NFL Draft. Murray’s replacement under center in Norman,Jalen Hurts, is having himself a Heisman-worthy season as well, with almost universally giving the senior the second-best odds as the Sooners look to become the first school with back-to-back-to-back winners of the most prestigious award in collegiate sports.
As a former Heisman winner, Murray has earned the right to vote for the trophy moving forward. Given the fact that his successor is putting up Heisman-worthy numbers, that vote would surely go to Hurts, right?

The Arizona Cardinals have agreed to a trade for Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake, according to a report.Arizona would give up a conditional 2020 NFL draft pick in the deal, according to Schefter.
Well, not exactly.
“Our guy (Hurts) kind of took a hit with that loss,” said Murray said Wednesday by way of. “I think right now, if somebody had to win, it’d probably be Joe Burrow.”
Burrow would, of course, be LSU’s starting quarterback andwho will have a national stage on which to perform this Saturday against Alabama. And “that loss” would be late last month, although Hurts put up nearly 500 yards of offense (395 passing, 96 rushing) and four touchdowns in nearly leading the Sooners back from a 25-point fourth-quarter deficit.
By the way, good on Murray for showing the willingness to vote with his head and not his school colors.
