'Can't win them all': Caleb Williams makes CFP admission to fellow Heisman finalists
Caleb Williams took home the Heisman Trophy Saturday night, capturing an overwhelming share of the first-place votes and dominating the final point total.
Williams beat out fellow QBs CJ Stroud, Max Duggan and Stetson Bennett for the honor. However, there’s one shared similarity between the other finalists that Williams will not get to be a part of.
That shared similarity is that the other finalists will compete for a national title via the College Football Playoff. Williams referenced that fact during his acceptance speech.
“I may be standing up here today, but y’all get to go to the College Football Playoff. Guess you can’t win them all,” admitted Williams.

Williams did have a dramatic run to the Heisman and produced 11 wins with the Trojans this season but fell just short of the Playoff. A loss to Utah in the Pac-12 Championship Game knocked USC out of the field with Ohio State taking the Trojans’ place.
While Williams is undoubtedly proud to take home the Heisman, he’ll likely be shooting for bigger things in 2022.
