Zander Horvath, the 6-foot-3, 230-pound running back, has been compared to former star Mike Alstott. And not just because both players wore No. 40. Horvath had a team-high 449 yards rushing last season, averaging 5.0 per carry, and was third in receptions with 30 for 304 yards. Purdue needs him to replicate those numbers this year.
