"[Murray] has done things in college football that have never happened before, but I think the biggest thing for me is he had to do it in big moments. He's had to continually make big plays in big games throughout the entire year. He's been the most dynamic player in the country. ... There's a lot of other great ones out there, I get this, but our guy right here is pretty special." -- Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley
