Junior linebacker Kenneth Murray is named on the 2019 Butkus Award Watch List. The award is given to the best linebacker in college football.
Murray is just coming off of a sophomore season where he tallied 155 tackles, including a game when he racked up 28 tackles in Oklahoma's 28-21 win over Army.
Teddy Lehman is the last Sooner to win the award (2003). Among other Sooners are Rocky Calmus (2001) and Brian Bosworth twice (1985-86). Former LSU linebacker — now Tampa Bay Buccaneer — Devin White was the 2018 winner.
