The TCU Horned Frogs are gearing up to take on Michigan in the College Football Playoff. Heading into the matchup, a former Super Bowl MVP dropped a take comparing TCU quarterback Max Duggan to college football legend Tim Tebow.

Desmond Howard, the MVP of Super Bowl XXXI, spoke about Duggan’s success this season on ESPN’s, ‘Get Up’ He said that the way Duggan leads the Horned Frogs reminds him of Tebow’s time with the Florida Gators.

“Max Duggan is a guy that’s the heart and soul of that whole team,” Howard said. “He really reminds me, because of his toughness and mindset, of a right-handed Tim Tebow.”

Duggan has led TCU to a 12-1 record this season. It’s the team’s best pre-bowl game finish since 2014, where the Horned Frogs also went 12-1.
