Caleb Williams is one of the best of the best quarterbacks in college football, and the USC Trojans really couldn't be any more excited to have him aboard. One of the best parts about it, too, is that Williams gets his head coach from last year in Lincoln Riley back with him.

Riley and Williams coming from OU to USC is what many look at as the two best parts of this past offseason, which was by far the most unique in college football history.

The Trojans utilized the transfer portal as much as possible to make sure they surrounded Williams with the right talent and pieces for him to be as successful as he can be. With him poised for his second consecutive dominant season, it's worth looking at where he ranks among his conference foes.

No. 12 starting quarterback in the Pac-12: Brendon Lewis--Colorado Buffaloes

Brendon Lewis is coming off of a year where he didn't do too many big things for Colorado, but he did stay healthy and he did protect the football. Only throwing three picks over the course of the full, 12-game season, he can hang his hat on limiting the bad mistakes.

He had a little bit to him as a runner, too; putting up 188 rushing yards and scoring a pair on the ground. He'll need to improve as a passer if he wants to take a big step, though, as he completed just 58% of his passes in 2021. He averaged just six yards per attempt and threw only 10 touchdown passes.
