Caleb Williams has been beat up all game for USC Football. He's not only dealing with a gash on his throwing hand, but he has also been limping all game long. He very noticeably doesn't look right, and he has lost his mobility throughout the contest. Miller Moss has been warming up for the Trojans, in case Williams cannot go any longer. He has been the backup QB all season long.

Moss has played in four games this year for the Trojans. He completed 12 of his 14 passes, and for 11.4 passing yards per attempt. He's at 12.8 adjusted passing yards per attempt. He had one touchdown and no turnovers. He has run for nine yards on three rush attempts.

Moss also played in one game last season for SC, where he completed eight passes out of 13 attempts for 74 yards and a touchdown. He had no turnovers in that contest as well.

USC Football QB Caleb Williams may need to be replaced by Miller Moss in the fourth quarter.

Caleb Williams does not look the same via the eye test, and USC Football has not scored in any of their last five drives. If the injury situation for Williams gets worse, Miller Moss very well may be decided by Head Coach Lincoln Riley to give the Trojans the best chance to win.

Williams is the favorite to win the Heisman, though, so it's important not to give up on him unless Riley deems it necessary. His mobility on the day doesn't look affected via the box score, as he is averaging 7.3 yards per carry (seven rushes for 51 yards), but the eye test does not look pretty. It would be quite the Heisman moment if Williams is able to come back from this.
