The Texas A&M Aggies continued their hot start to the season with a short-handed 24-13 road conference win over the South Carolina Gamecocks.
The win moves the Aggies to 5-0 on the season and sets up a showdown with fellow SEC unbeaten Tennessee next Saturday.
As is the case each week, we hand out Game Balls to the Aggies top performers from the South Carolina win.
Trevor Knight - Knight continues to get the job done for the Aggies under center and was key in the Aggies win over the Gamecocks. Through the air, Knight went 23 of 40 for 206 yards but made his biggest impact on the ground. He rushed for 84 yards and a score and other than the one interception did a good job of protecting the ball.
Shaan Washington - The senior leader continues to have a tremendous start to the 2016 season. In the win Saturday he had a game leading 11 tackles, including a sack and another tackle-for-loss. He also forced a key fumble in the game which was recovered by the Aggies.
Trayveon Williams - The standout freshman continues his emergence in the college football world and his early production is starting to get noticed. On Saturday he finished the day with 98 rushing yards and a score.
Daeshon Hall - The big news was who was not playing (Myles Garrett) when maybe it should have been about who was, Hall. Hall stepped his game up in his fellow end's absence, finishing his day with six tackles, two sacks and another 1.5 tackle-for-loss. He was also credited with two quarterback hurries.
Jeremy Tabuyo - Tabuyo saw an increased role, especially early in the game with the absence of a couple of Aggie receivers. Tabby stepped up early in the game averaging over 10 yards a catch and finishing with 89 yards receiving on the day. He also had the highlight reel one-handed catch.
