USC Football: QB Caleb Williams wins Heisman Trophy 2022

The Heisman Trophy 2022 goes to quarterback Caleb Williams of Southern California.

Williams became the eighth Trojan to win the most coveted honour in college football, tying USC with Notre Dame and Oklahoma.

Williams had a stellar 13-game stat line. He completed 296 of 448 passes (.661) for 4,075 yards on the ground while rushing for 372 yards on 109 runs with 10 touchdowns. He threw for 47 touchdowns and only four interceptions.

Under Williams’ leadership, the Trojans had an 11-2 record. And even though USC was ultimately eliminated from the College Football Playoff due to its two defeats to Utah, Williams’ outstanding campaign far overcame the blemish in the eyes of the majority of Heisman voters.

Williams received 2,031 total points and 544 first-place votes. Max Duggan of TCU received 1,420 points and 188 first-place votes to finish in second place.

Ohio State’s CJ Stroud finished third with 37 first-place votes and 539 total points. Georgian Stetson Bennett, who received 36 first-place votes and 249 total points, finished just behind him in fourth place.

Hendon Hooker of Tennessee took fifth place with 17 first-place votes and 226 total points.

Here is a comprehensive list of every Heisman Trophy winner since 1935, along with the runners-up and third-place finishers in each season. The nation’s top football player receives the honour each year.
