Running Backs

With the inexperienced Allen now behind center, expect the Aggies to lean more on a solid group of running backs for offensive production. Last week against UL Monroe, Texas A&M attempted a season high 41 rushing attempt, but gained only 3.3 yards per carry against the Sun Belt Conference opponent.

Tra Carson is the primary ball carrier for the Aggies. He has gained a team high 326 yards on 72 attempts and is tied for the team lead with five rushing touchdowns. At 230 pounds, Carson is a bruising north-south runner with the ability to handle a heavy workload should he be called upon to do so.

At 5-foot-8 and 195 pounds, Trey Williams is the lightning to Carson’s thunder. Williams has 52 carries for 313 yards this season and has also scored five times on the ground. However, he “didn’t handle his business” prior to the UL-Monroe game and did not play in the game as a result.

Brandon Williams actually led the Aggies in rushing last week with 71 yards on 19 carries, which were both season highs for the junior. Williams has 280 rushing yards and three TDs on 60 carries this year. The Oklahoma transfer was a five-star recruit for the Sooners and may be regaining the form that earn him that distinction.
