Caleb Williams has been having a Heisman-level season for USC Football this year. He's completing 64.6% of his passes, while also throwing for 8.7 yards per pass attempt, and 10.3 adjusted yards per pass attempt. To make him even more dangerous, he's also racking up four yards per carry on the ground for 287 rushing yards.
Those numbers are all great, but there's one more stat that is truly starting to set him apart from the rest of the country as the potential Heisman favorite:
The type of season Williams is having is something out of a video game. To put it in further perspective, it's not just that Williams has 28 touchdown passes. Williams has also ran for four scores on the ground, and his one interception is his only turnover all year.
Again, it's not just that he's the only QB in America to have done this during this season. As Jack Smith of 247Sports pointed out, Williams is the first one to do this since 2004. This 28th touchdown pass put him over two CFB legends in Justin Fields and Tua Tagovailoa, for the only one to do this since '04.
Now nine games into the season, this type of stat for USC Football QB Caleb Williams is clearly no fluke.
Caleb Williams has been performing at this elite level for USC Football for far too long for this type of play to be ignored. Williams also has his team 8-1, and with his one loss being a one-point defeat to a top 14 Utah team on the road, in a game where it took horrendous officiating to pry the win from the Trojans' hands.
Even the poll voters know it, as Utah is still ranked five spots lower than the Trojans despite beating them. The media knows that, but do they know how great Williams has been? With so many late games and three on the PAC-12 Network, that is currently unknown.
Unfortunately, SC has yet another late, 8:30 p.m. PT kickoff this week. Regardless of who's watching, though, Williams will always show up and dominate. It's what he's done all season.
