That’s why he’s the 2023 Heisman Trophy winner.
Daniels tops the statistical charts across the country, from total yards and passer rating to deep throws and explosive runs. Number for number, stat for stat, Daniels is outperforming and outproducing every player in college football.
But Daniels isn’t just having the best season of any quarterback in 2023. He’s elite among the history of Heisman winners, with a higher passing efficiency and more total yards per game than any player to ever win the trophy. He’s also the only quarterback in FBS history with 12,000 passing yards and 3,000 rushing yards in a career and 350 passing yards and 200 rushing yards in a game.
