The first player since USC's Rodney Peete in 1988 to win the award 3 consecutive times.
True sophomore QB Khalil Tate was thrusted into action in Week 6 after Colorado knocked incumbent starter Brandon Dawkins out of the game with a rib injury. Three games later, Tate has completed 31/41 passes for 468 yards (11.4 ypa), 694 rushing yards (15.1 ypc), and 11 total TDs.
It looks like RichRod might have found his next Denard/Pat White at Arizona.
Edit: No desire to bring back RichRod, but that doesn't mean his offense isn't still entertaining/electric as ever.
