Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (13) scrambles for a first down during the second half of an NCAA college football game against Arkansas State, Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018, in Tuscaloosa, Ala. Alabama won 57-7. 

Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray was awarded the Heisman Trophy during a televised ceremony in New York Saturday night.

Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was one of three finalists for the Heisman, along with Murray and Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins.

No. 1 Alabama plays No. 4 Oklahoma in a College Football Playoff semifinal on Dec. 29.

Murray, a fourth-year junior at Oklahoma, is the seventh Sooner to win the Heisman, according to Heisman.com. He leads the nation in passing efficiency with a rating of 205.72, according to the NCAA.

At the Heisman Trophy presentation ceremony, Alabama's Tagovailoa was not wearing the walking boot he has been using to treat his surgically repaired left ankle.

Tagovailoa suffered a high ankle sprain against Georgia in the Southeastern Conference championship game last Saturday and had minor surgery to repair the damage earlier this week in Birmingham.
