Casey Pachall may be one of the most underrated quarterbacks in college football today.
With the Horned Frogs losing four-year starting quarterback Andy Dalton to the NFL, many expected the Frogs offense to struggle while transitioning to a new quarterback.
Thanks to Pachall that simply wasn't the case.
The Frogs scored early and often as Pachall led a dynamic offense that put up 40.8 points per game, good for ninth in the country.
In fact, Pachall's first season as starter was statistically comparable to Dalton's final season—Pachall had more yards and a slightly better completion percentage while Dalton threw two more touchdowns and one fewer interception.
If Pachall can improve upon those numbers, he could be a dark-horse candidate for the Heisman Trophy in 2012.
