TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Welcome back to the national spotlight Arizona Wildcats!

Less than a month before their first game, quarterback Khalil Tate graced the cover of Sports Illustrated, being touted as "the Nation's best QB."

The sports magazine even went as far as to say he should be handed the Heisman Trophy now, usually awarded to the best player in college football.

This is the fifth time in 2018 that a University of Arizona athlete, both present and past, have been featured on the cover.

The Arizona Wildcats kick off the 2018 football season at home against BYU on September 1.
