In another Heisman race loaded with talent at QB, USC’s Caleb Williams took home the hardware this past Saturday night. Williams managed to beat out three other quarterbacks to take home the Heisman, all three of which will be in the coming playoff. It was the first time since 2018 that the four finalists all played at QB. Williams finished with a total of 2031 points including 544 first-place votes. Behind him, TCU’s Max Duggan had 1420 points with 188 first-place votes. Ohio State’s C.J. Stroud and Georgia’s Stetson Bennett finished out the top four respectively.
Williams led the finalists with 47 total touchdowns and 4,447 total yards while only throwing four interceptions. USC ended their regular season with an 11-2 record and ultimately fell short of their playoff goals. A loss to Utah in the PAC-12 Championship is the only blemish on an otherwise flawless resume. The dynamic QB is the first USC Trojan to officially be on record to win it since QB Matt Leinart won it in 2004. RB Reggie Bush had won it in 2005 but was stripped of the trophy after an investigation revealed he accepted impermissible benefits in the form of money and a vehicle.
USC will go on to face the No. 16 ranked Tulane Green Wave in the Cotton Bowl on January 2nd. Duggan and TCU will take on the Michigan Wolverines in the Fiesta Bowl on December 31st and afterward, Bennett will face off against Stroud when Georgia and Ohio State meet in the Peach Bowl.
TL//DR: USC’s Caleb Williams Wins Heisman
