Caleb Williams put together another Heisman performance for USC Football in their dominant win vs. Colorado on Friday. Williams strung together 10.3 yards per pass attempt on the night, and scored three passing touchdowns. Not only that, but he only threw one interception (his only turnover of the game), and ran for two rushing touchdowns as well.
One of the best parts of the performance, however, was that Williams did it in style. Williams put together impressive highlight after impressive highlight, but the No. 1 play he made was reminiscent of Patrick Mahomes in the NFL. He had a Mahomes style, no-look dime to Austin Jones for a touchdown:
Not only did Williams have incredible pocket awareness to avoid swarms of Buffalo defenders, but he somehow delivered a no-look flip to Jones for what resulted in yet another touchdown pass for the Heisman hopeful. These are the type of highlights they play in New York City during the Heisman ceremony. It's time to get Williams to New York.
Williams has most certainly looked the part all year. He's averaging 8.8 yards per pass attempt and 10.4 adjusted yards per pass attempt. He's now up to 31 passing touchdowns, and just two interceptions. Adding on six rushing touchdowns, he's also a dominant threat with his legs. He's chipped in 283 rushing yards on the year.
Caleb Williams has now taken USC Football from a 4-8 record to a 9-1 record.
Even better yet, Caleb Williams has USC Football ranked as the No. 8 team in the country. The best part is that they are even maybe to improve upon that ranking on Tuesday when the next CFP Top 25 rankings release. He also always makes plays when he's needed most, as this touchdown pass illustrates.
This pass contributed to Williams rising up to 21 red zone pass TDs on Friday, which at the time was No. 1 in the Power 5 (PFF). (It is unclear if that season record still stands.) Williams is even better this season due to his improved consistency, and he looks to show it in a game next week where everybody will be watching against UCLA.
