Texas A&M starting QB Trevor Knight says he will be on the field when the Aggies play Kansas State in the Texas Bowl.
Knight missed two full games in November due to a shoulder injury, and it limited him in the season finale against LSU. However, he told the Houston Chronicle’s Brent Zwerneman that he will definitely be on the field against the Wildcats.
A&M QB Trevor Knight said "absolutely" he will be playing in Texas Bowl vs. Kansas State on Dec. 28.

Knight suffered the injury in a 35-28 loss to Mississippi State on Nov. 5. Jake Hubenak filled in while he was out. The backup completed 60.5 percent of his passes with 5 touchdowns and 2 interceptions during Knight’s absence.
Knight threw 3 touchdown passes against LSU, but two of those came after the Tigers had the game well in hand. He completed just 14 of 30 passes against the Tigers.
The graduate transfer from Oklahoma has completed 51.9 percent of his passes for 2,122 yards and 16 touchdowns with 6 interceptions this season. He has also run for 594 yards and 10 touchdowns.
