OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Athletics remain hopeful of seeing Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray in their uniform when spring training begins next month.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Oklahoma's Kyler Murray and Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa have struck up a friendship over the past several weeks, which shouldn't be surprising considering how much time the quarterbacks have spent alongside one another in that span.
They were in Atlanta together at a college football awards show, where Tagovailoa took home the Maxwell Award.
They were in New York a few days later for the Heisman Trophy presentation, where Murray claimed the top prize.
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley recalls an odd request from fellow assistant Tim Kish a few years ago.

They definitely don't want their prized baseball prospect hurt on the football field.
The Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback from Oklahoma has made himself many new fans in the A's organization — except when he dashes from the pocket.
The College Football Playoff semifinalists combined to place 10 players on The Associated Press All-America first team, including a high of four from No. 1 Alabama.
The Crimson Tide had six players chosen to the three All-America teams, more than any other school. No. 2 Clemson has three first-teamers, No. 4 Oklahoma has two All-Americans — including quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray — and No. 3 Notre Dame had one.
Tua Tagovailoa will be the odds-on favorite to win the Heisman Trophy next season after the Alabama quarterback had to settle for second to Oklahoma's Kyler Murray.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Under center at the 1-yard line, Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota checked out of a quarterback sneak, and Derrick Henry did the rest — as much with his arms as his legs.
The 6-foot-3, 247-pound Henry sped and stiff-armed his way to a record-tying 99-yard touchdown run , and Tennessee routed the Jacksonville Jaguars 30-9 on Thursday night to stay in the playoff chase.
ATLANTA (AP) — The Latest on the college football awards show (all times local):
Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa topped Oklahoma's Kyler Murray in college football player of the year awards on Thursday, 2-1.

WHO: Dwayne Haskins Jr.
YEAR/POSITION/SCHOOL: Sophomore, QB, Ohio State
BIO: After a redshirt year, the New Jersey native who played prep ball in Potomac, Maryland, waited his turn behind J.T. Barrett last year. His legend grew as he came in the 2017 Michigan game after a Barrett injury and led the Buckeyes to a come-from-behind victory. He became the undisputed starter last summer when Joe Burrow transferred to LSU.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — It was subtle, but that definitely was the Heisman Trophy pose that Dwayne Haskins Jr. struck in the end zone after throwing his fifth touchdown pass of the Big Ten championship game last weekend.
It wasn't quite the hey-look-at-me, Desmond Howard version, but it was an unmistakable Heisman stiff-arm, high-leg stance, even if just for a second.
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma's Kyler Murray pulled off an impressive triple play during a brutal 30-hour stretch in April.
On a Friday night, he played center field for the Sooners' baseball team. The next day, he played quarterback in the football team's spring game. After that, he played another baseball game Saturday night.

For the second time in less than 11 months, the two Southeastern Conference powers are set to meet at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium with a championship on the line in a mentor-versus-protege coaching showdown. Tua Tagovailoa's back, too, this time as anything but an understudy.
Hold up on handing Tua Tagovailoa the Heisman Trophy.
The Alabama quarterback looked only OK in the top-ranked Crimson Tide's shutout of No. 18 Mississippi State . And a chronically cranky knee again kept him from finishing the game. After tearing through the first two months of the season with what looked like one of the great offenses in college football history, Alabama now looks like the 1985 Chicago Bears.
The Associated Press has been honoring college football's best with an All-America team since 1925. The full three-team AP All-America selections will be unveiled in December.

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray is comfortable with all that comes with being a Heisman Trophy contender — it's why the first-round Major League Baseball draft choice put off his baseball career.

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray didn't start against Baylor on Saturday for the sixth-ranked Sooners. But he quickly made an impact.
He entered on the second possession and threw a 9-yard touchdown to Lee Morris with his first pass for a 7-0 lead at 12:58 in the first quarter.

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — As time was expiring in Missouri's duel with Purdue, Tucker McCann drilled a winning 25-yard field goal to move the Tigers to their first 3-0 start since 2015.
He probably wouldn't have had the chance without Drew Lock.
Heisman Trophy winners need Heisman moments and at least a few big-stage games to bolster their resumes on the way to New York.
The early season chatter has mostly been dominated by first-year starting quarterbacks from highly ranked teams: Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa, Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins and Oklahoma's Kyler Murray.
