Fans of Longhorns, Aggies, Crimson Tide, rest of CFB react to Kyler Murray’s Heisman win

Kyler Murray did it.

For most of this season, Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was the favorite to win the 2018 Heisman Trophy.

But the quarterback of the Oklahoma Sooners turned the tide at the end of this season.

The Crimson Tide are still a strong favorite to win the 2018 College Football Playoff.

But it was Murray’s late push, which was capped off by a strong Big 12 Championship win over Texas, that secured the sport’s most coveted award.

In recent days, the Allen High School product even became the favorite to walk across the stage in New York.

Here’s how fans of the Longhorns, the Texas A&M Aggies (where Murray started his college career), Alabama and the rest of college football reacted on social media.
