The comparisons between Kansas State’s Collin Klein, a Heisman Trophy candidate, and former Florida star Tim Tebow, who won the Heisman in 2007, are not lost on people.
Both are big, physical, run-first quarterbacks who aren’t the prettiest of passers. The are also humble, straight-laced Christian fellows who are known as fierce competitors.
Their statistics may end up being similar, too.
In 13 games during his Heisman-winning season, Tebow passed for 3,286 yards and 32 touchdowns with six interceptions, completing 66.9% of his throws. He also ran for 895 yards and 23 touchdowns.
These are Klein’s 13-game projections heading into Saturday night's game against Oklahoma State: 2,649 yards passing with 20 touchdowns and three interceptions; 1,030 yards and 26 touchdowns rushing.
