TCU quarterback Max Duggan finished second in the voting for the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night in New York City. Duggan finished behind USC’s Caleb Williams, who won the award.
Stetson Bennett, of Georgia, and C.J. Stroud, of Ohio State were the other finalists.
Williams earned a majority of first-place votes in the balloting, which comprises 870 members of the media across the country as well as 57 former Heisman winners. Williams is the first USC player to win the trophy since Reggie Bush took it home in 2005.
Duggan was the clear second choice of the voters. Caleb Williams finished with 2,031 total points, Duggan came in with 1,420 and then it was Stroud with 539 and Bennett with 349. Duggan was also second with 188 first place votes, while Williams had 544. No one else had more than 37 first-place votes.
Williams has thrown for 4,075 yards, including 37 touchdowns and only four interceptions. Duggan finished his season with 3,321 passing yards, 30 touchdowns, four interceptions, all while completing 64.9% of his passes.
USC finished the regular season 11-1 before losing to Utah in the Pac-12 Championship last week, while TCU went 12-1 on the season, also falling in their conference title game to Kansas State.
With Williams winning, head coach Lincoln Riley has now coached three of the last six Heisman winners in Baker Mayfield (2017), Kyler Murray (2018) and now Williams in 2022.
