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.
See the video above for Purdue head coach Jeff Brohm's comments on how the two are both similar and different.
