Caleb Williams propels No. 5 USC past Notre Dame 38-27

LOS ANGELES (AP) After Caleb Williams perfectly faked a handoff and sprinted up the middle for the first of his three rushing touchdowns against Notre Dame, he went to the Southern California sideline and extended a stiff-arm with his body coiled in a familiar way.

Williams' teammates had been demanding a Heisman Trophy pose from him, and USC's spectacular quarterback is nothing if not a team player.

"They kept saying it, so I just ended up doing it in the moment," Williams said with a smile and a shrug.
