Caleb Williams and Shedeur Sanders meet on the field today as the #8 Trojans travel to Boulder to take on the Buffaloes, who dropped from the rankings after last week’s loss to Oregon.
Before we find out how these young men do against one another on the field, let’s take a look at how they’ve each been taking advantage of NIL opportunities.
USC quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Caleb Williams is one of the most successful college quarterbacks on and off the field.

In addition to starring alongside his mother in Dr Pepper’s “Fansville” this season, he’s also in national ads for Nissan and Wendy’s. Williams has also invested in modern grooming brand Faculty, where he is part owner and will be included in its campaigns.
NIL afforded Williams an opportunity to create Caleb Cares, a foundation that is working to eliminate bullying. The foundation has put out a PSA and will be partnering with Dr Pepper this fall for an activation.

Sanders has also launched his own apparel line, SS2LEGENDARY.
Over the summer, Sanders worked with Gatorade to present $45,000 worth of equipment and uniforms to the N.E.D. Falcons Youth Organization in Denver. Sanders was also the first HBCU athlete to sign with Gatorade.
