No. 10 Texas AM grabbed a late touchdown run from quarterback Trevor Knight in a initial half and close down No. 17 Arkansas in a second half of a 45-24 feat in ATT Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The Aggies close down a Razorbacks in a second half and scored 28 points on offense to urge to 4-0 and conduct into Oct meditative about creation a run during a SEC West pretension (and potentially for genuine this time).
With a diversion tied during 17-17, Arkansas put together a removal 89-yard expostulate on 19 plays, yet it was a Texas AM invulnerability that hold clever down by a idea line. Just as they had finished twice in a initial half, Texas AM prevented Arkansas from punching a football opposite a idea line, this time with a fourth-down stand. Two plays later, Texas AM quarterback Trevor Knight unloaded a low round to Josh Reynolds racing down a right sideline. The round was placed ideally for Reynolds and he let his speed take caring of a rest on a 92-yard touchdown drive. It was utterly a movement pitch and a Aggies did not demeanour back.
Texas AM scored a touchdown after forcing Arkansas to punt on a indirect possession and took advantage of a brief margin from a 15-yard line after an Arkansas fumble. Trayveon Williams did a honors on a initial touchdown with a 33-yard scurry and Christian Kirk got his hands on a pass from Knight after a Razorbacks’ fumble.
Four games into a deteriorate and there appears to be adequate justification to advise this Texas AM invulnerability has improved, and that helps make Texas AM a challenging actor in a SEC West relocating forward. Is it prepared to take down Alabama? Probably not, yet a Aggies have a demeanour of a second-best group in a SEC behind a fortifying inhabitant champions. Arkansas still has a intensity to play spoiler with anyone on their report though, including Alabama.
Knight was a appurtenance for a Aggies, finale his night with 225 flitting yards, dual flitting touchdowns, a game-high 157 rushing yards and dual rushing touchdowns. Arkansas quarterback upheld for 371 yards and dual scores, yet took a violence all night.
Texas AM is 4-0 for a third true deteriorate underneath Kevin Sumlin. The final time Texas AM went 4-0 in 3 straight seasons was 1939-1941. It is also a third true undefeated Sep for Texas AM, that was final achieved from 1997 by 1999. The prohibited chair speak has been nowhere to be listened in College Station this season.
Arkansas gets a expected breather subsequent week when they lapse home to horde Alcorn State. A home diversion opposite Alabama looms after that. Texas AM will stay in SEC play subsequent week when they conduct to South Carolina. The Gamecocks are entrance off a 17-10 detriment during Kentucky.
