Caleb Williams waited until he was nearing USC’s sideline following his 2nd td in Saturday’s 38-27 victory over Notre Dame before displaying the Heisman posture in the goal line. But if he would have immediately channeled the internal Howard inside the goal line, it’s hard to hold that against him.
Even though Drew Pyne lasted more than 1/3 without making an incomplete pass, the Trojans qb outperformed his Irish rival. Caleb Williams was under a lot of pressure from No. fifteen Notre Dame (8-4), but it frequently backfired.
Although Caleb Williams charmed his own road out of difficulty as well as across the ground for gains, the Irish backline might have been capable of absorbing him if it had decided completely not to chase him inside the backfield.
Caleb Williams displayed less control after scoring three touchdowns in total. He stared at Irish senior lb Jack Kiser as he entered the goal line, not exactly mocking him but clearly enjoying the 31-14 advantage. That time, Caleb Williams could not get into the goal line before striking the Heisman stance twice when he started to head back towards the Trojans’ bench.
Caleb Williams Displayed A Heisman-Worthy Display And Did Not Allow Opponents Any Opening:
With a showing that was so utterly overpowering, Notre Dame can hardly be blamed for losing in its most important rivalry. He deserved his celebration on Saturday, winning the game and perhaps the Heisman Trophy. Caleb Williams completed the game with 3 rushing scores and one throwing td. He gained seventy yards on 7 runs and threw for two thirty-two yards on 18 of 22 attempts.
With his first fifteen passes completed and 3 touchdowns thrown, Pyne used one of his greatest matches of his tenure. However, a botched zone-read keep and a careless cross-body intercept negated those gains. These errors gave USC an advantage over a backline that had twenty-four forced turnovers coming into the weekend. More importantly, they ended Notre Dame’s minimal opportunities.
