The Texas A&M Aggies took an inexplicable loss on Saturday to the Mississippi State Bulldogs. The then-ranked No. 4 Aggies fell on the road in Starkville 35-28, but in the process they didn’t just lose a game or their standing in the College Football Playoff rankings.
As it turns out, they’ve also lost their starting quarterback for the remainder of the 2016 season. Trevor Knight, the former Oklahoma Sooner transfer, suffered a shoulder injury and is done for the year.

Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin did say that Knight could be back for whichever bowl game the Aggies land in.

To this point, Knight had thrown for 1,911 yards, 13 touchdowns and six interceptions with a completion percentage of 52.5 percent.
Obviously, this is a crushing blow to the Aggies who now will entrust in their backup Jake Hubenak going forward.
