The Texas A&M Aggies squared off with the Arkansas Razorbacks Saturday in their annual game in Dallas. The Aggies came away with an impressive 45-24 win, and as is the case each week Aggie Digest hands out it's Game Balls to the top performers.

Trevor Knight - The Aggies offense in 2016 will only go as far as Knight can lead it. He is surrounded by a wealth of talent but his ability to manage the game and deliver the ball will dictate the Aggies success and it was apparent on Saturday. Knight finished his day 12 of 22 through the air for 225 yards and a pair of scores. He was perhaps more dangerous with his legs, racking up a team leading 168 yards on the ground to go with another pair of scores.

Armani Watts - The junior safety continued to show his development as a top level player on Saturday, putting together an impressive final stat line. He finished with a team leading nine tackles, including a game leading 2.5 for-loss. He also forced and recovered a fumble, had a pass break-up and a quarterback hurry as well.

Trayveon Williams - The freshman had an impressive game in his largest amount of touches thus far. Williams finished his game with 12 rushes for 153 yards and two scores. Developing another weapon out of the backfield will be very good for offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone.

Josh Reynolds - It seems as though Reynolds is just getting up to full speed after fighting minor injuries in camp. He fished his day against Arkansas with 4 catches for 141 yards, including the big 92 yard scoring strike from Knight.

Myles Garrett - Garrett could get a game ball just about every game he plays in but on Saturday, not only was he effective before the leg injury he sustained but continued to be effective afterwards despite clearly being limited. He finished his day with 3 official tackles, including one for-loss. He also finished with a fumble recovery and a quarterback hurry.
