WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Without a doubt, Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson is a one of the country's best dual-threat quarterbacks. Jackson is one year removed from winning the Heisman Trophy.
Many, though, are already comparing Arizona quarterback Khalil Tate's skill-set to that of Jackson.
Tate actually rushed for more yards than Jackson, per-game in 2017. (Tate averaged 135 ypg, Jackson averaged 120 ypg)
Purdue played Louisville in the first game of the 2017 season, a game in which Jackson rushed 21 times for 107 yards.
Purdue will face Tate and Arizona on Dec. 27 in the Foster Farms Bowl.
