Here are the following quarterbacks, and the seasons that have led them to this kind of recognition.
Ohio State’s Quarterback, C.J. Stroud
Stroud is no stranger to the Heisman ceremony, and is a finalist for the second straight year. He shares the first place spot for most touchdown passes with USC’s Caleb Williams, and his yards per game fall to the other finalists. Despite this, he edges out with a 9.4 yard attempt average.
University of Southern California’s Quarterback, Caleb Williams
An Oklahoma transfer for USC has made a name for himself within his first year at school. Williams showed why he earned his spot as a Heisman-Finalist. This year, he tied for first with 37 touchdown passes, 313 yards passing per game and 10 added touchdowns. Williams has arguably been the backbone of his team this year, getting them in the running for a PAC-12 title and a playoff spot.

Texas Christian Universities Quarterback, Max Duggan
Max Duggan replaced Chandler Morris for TCU after their first week of play. Duggan threw 3,321 yards for the Horned Frogs and secured 36 touchdowns. Additionally, the quarterback helped his team secure an undefeated regular season and the third place spot in the CFP. Furthermore, being the MVP of his team will likely have impact on his Heisman Finalist spot.
University of Georgia’s Quarterback, Stetson Bennett
Stetson Bennett led his team to the playoffs as the No. 1 seed. With 3,425 yards thrown, 21 touchdowns and added 184 yards and seven touchdowns, he is an all-around athlete with a Heisman-caliber year.
