I am a Heisman Trophy voter. As such, how can I NOT pay attention to what Arizona quarterback Khalil Tate has done the last two weeks? 230 yards Saturday night in a win over UCLA, after an FBS single-game rushing record for a quarterback with 327 yards at Colorado 7 days earlier.

Tate had TD runs of 45 and 71 yards along with a 53 yard td pass in the Arizona 47-30 win over UCLA.
He’s the first player in the last 20 years to run for over 200 yards in back to back games. More importantly, Tate has given Arizona football a buzz factor, something usually reserved for anything related to the Wildcat basketball program.
Will the “Tate Show” be the reason that fans of Arizona decide to show up at the stadium?
