Last year’s Heisman Trophy winner has identified the favorite to win the award this year. Arizona Cardinals rookie quarterback Kyler Murray knows a Heisman winner when he sees one, and the former Oklahoma star sees LSU’s Joe Burrow as the frontrunner.

“Our guy [Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts] kind of took a hit with that loss,” said Murray, a former Sooners star, of OU’s 48-41 defeat at Kansas State on Oct. 26. “I think right now, if somebody had to win, it’d probably be Joe Burrow.”

Burrow has completed 78.8% of his passes, 30 for touchdowns, with just four interceptions in leading the Tigers to an 8-0 record.
