This is music to all of our ears. While we have grown to love Jake Hubenak, Knight is the clear better choice to face such a difficult team. Trevor Knight has performed exceptionally well this season. In the first 9 games of the season he threw for 1911 yards and 13 touchdowns, along with rushing for 583 yards and 10 more touchdowns!
Trevor Knight has proved to be the true leader of Texas A&M’s offense. He came into the season with a big question mark on his back and quickly earned the trust and support his teammates, coaches, and fans. To say Aggie fans are excited is a massive understatement and I think I can speak for us all when I say that we are much more confident going into this game with Knight leading the charge.
We had initially predicting LSU winning in College Station by a score of 23-21. Betting markets opened with the Tigers favored by 4.5 points before being bet up to 7 points on Wednesday evening. Knight is a wild card and he’s probably worth a touchdown by himself. LSU will be favored, but it’s a fifty-fifty proposition at this point. Gig’em Aggies and beat the hell outta LSU. Whoop!
