It was a roller coaster day for Texas A&M, which ended on a high note with a 45-38 double-overtime victory against Tennessee.
A key cog in that victory was true freshman running back Trayveon Williams. In fact, he was so good that he ran his way into the Aggies record books during the win against the Vols at Kyle Field on Saturday.
Williams had 28 carries for 217 yards rushing and a rushing touchdown. According to Aggies beat reporter Brent Zwerneman, those 217 yards were good enough to set a record for most rushing yards in Texas A&M football history by a true freshman.
Trayveon Williams' 217 rushing yards were the most ever by a Texas A&M true freshman. Still making C.E. King proud.

Alongside former Oklahoma transfer QB Trevor Knight, the production from the new-look backfield is a big reason the Aggies are off to a 6-0 start.
