The 2022 Heisman Trophy ceremony will be an all-quarterback affair.
This year, the four Heisman finalists are Caleb Williams of USC, Max Duggan of TCU, Stetson Bennett of Georgia and C.J. Stroud of Ohio State. Curiously, three fourths of the College Football Playoff teams are represented, with Williams leading the only non-Playoff team into bowl season.
Regardless, each finalist this season has exhibited admirable traits that warranted votes: Williams became the favorite down the stretch end of the season, elevating the Trojans’ play around him amid a run to a berth in the Pac-12 championship game, where they fell a game short of playing in the CFP.
Likewise, Duggan epitomized the Horned Frogs’ jump onto the national scene from seemingly out of nowhere, overcoming poor play in prior seasons to become a surprise Heisman finalist. Stroud led one of the nation’s most potent passing attacks and Bennett is the unquestioned leader of the unquestioned top team in college football.

How does the Heisman voting process work?
A Heisman Trophy vote was given to 929 total selectors in 2022: 870 media members across six geographic regions (Far West, Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, Northeast, South and Southwest), 58 living Heisman Trophy winners and one fan vote.
Voters were allowed to select any three players, in order of preference. A given voter’s first-place vote is worth three points; their second-place vote is worth two points; and their third-place is worth one point.
The Heisman Trust tallies the points total for each player based on selectors’ votes. The player with the highest points total wins the Heisman Trophy; the players who finish second through fourth are announced as finalists.
Voting for the Heisman Trophy opened on Nov. 28 and concluded on Monday, Dec. 5 at 5 p.m. ET.
All ballots were submitted electronically.
