College career[edit]

Texas A&M (2015)[edit]

As a true freshman in 2015, Murray competed with Kyle Allen before the season for the starting quarterback position.[14] Allen would win the job with Murray appearing in games as a backup (primarily on plays involving the wildcat formation).[15] After the team lost two straight games in October, the competition was opened again prior to the South Carolina game, and Murray won the starting quarterback position.[16] In his first start, Murray threw for 223 yards and rushed for 156 yards with a passing touchdown and a rushing touchdown, making him and Cam Newton the only SEC quarterbacks in the past 20 years to gain over 100 yards passing and rushing, including a passing touchdown and a rushing touchdown in their first career start.[17] On December 24, 2015, Murray announced that he was transferring to University of Oklahoma. He sat out the 2016 season per NCAA transfer rules.[18]

Oklahoma (2017)[edit]

In the 2017 season, Murray was a backup quarterback to Baker Mayfield. He got the opportunity to play in some games in relief of Mayfield. He made his season debut in the season opener against UTEP. In the 56–7 victory, he came into the game in the second half and finished 10-of-11 for 149 yards and a touchdown.[19] Two weeks later, against Tulane, he hit all three pass attempts for 103 yards and a touchdown.[20] On November 25, against West Virginia, he started the game after Mayfield had to sit out some of the game due to disciplinary actions in the previous game against Kansas. In the game, he hit both pass attempts for 52 total yards and a touchdown while contributing 80 rushing yards on three carries.[21]
