Caleb Williams, quarterback USC: The Oklahoma transfer has completed 122 of 188 passes for 1,590 yards with 14 touchdowns and thrown one interception this season. Williams has a host of athletic, talented wide receivers at his disposal, including the reigning Biletnikoff Award winner, Jordan Addison.


“They’ve got an outstanding group of receivers. They’re talented. They’re dangerous. They spread the ball around so you can’t focus on just one guy. You’ve got to be able to cover the whole batch of them. That will be a great challenge for our secondary as well as a big challenge for our front to speed up the quarterback so he doesn’t have all day to throw.” — Utah coach Kyle Whittingham 

“There will be several 6-0 teams that will finish really well, some that finish OK and some that don’t finish very good. But it’s just a start. It’s not a guarantee to anything. It will be a challenging second half of the season. But this is when it gets the most fun. This is what you do it for. You put yourself in a great position. Now it’s time to go accelerate and do your best.” — USC coach Lincoln Riley
