Texas A&M junior RB Trayveon Williams carried the ball 35 times for 198 yards and two touchdowns in a 74-72 victory over LSU in seven overtimes.
Williams didn't score in the overtime, but he made a few excellent runs that put the Aggies in position to put the ball in the end zone. Simply put, there haven't been many running backs better than Williams in 2018, and the 5-foot-9, 200-pound junior now has over 1,500 yards and 15 touchdowns. He gets one more chance to add to those totals, as A&M will be playing in a respectable bowl game after their eighth win of 2018. Nov 25 - 12:38 AM

Texas A&M junior RB Trayveon Williams rushed for 167 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries in Saturday's 41-20 win over UAB.

Yet another beautiful performance from Williams, who has really found his groove under HC Jimbo Fisher. The 5-foot-8, 200-pound junior consistently ripped off chunk yardage on his way to averaging 8.35 YPC for the game, putting in a long run of 47 yards. Just about our only quibble, here, has nothing to do with Williams himself. For reasons unknown, Fisher had Williams taking carries with under a minute remaining in the fourth quarter, when the game was well out of hand. While he avoided picking up a garbage time injury, it was still an unwarranted risk. Looking beyond this game, Williams has now rushed for 1,326 yards and 13 touchdowns. We found ourselves consistently frustrated with his output under Kevin Sumlin, but now we are starting to see what he can do when given a competent game plan. Fun stuff. Up next on the docket for the Aggies, a Week 13 date with LSU.
Nov 17 - 10:46 PM

Texas A&M junior RB Trayveon Williams ran for 228 yards and a score on 31 carries in a 38-24 victory over Ole Miss on Saturday.

Williams also caught three passes for 15 yards. An outstanding game for a player that has become one of the top tailbacks in the country. He had a long of 46, and has per usual, the 5-foot-8, 200-pound tailback was able to make the most of any hole he had with several five-plus gains to keep the Aggies on schedule. He's up to 11 rushing scores on the year, and he goes over the thousand-yard barrier for the first time as a member of A&M. Williams will face UAB next Saturday.
Nov 10 - 3:42 PM

Per Pro Football Focus, Texas A&M junior RB Traveon Williams contributed a 145.8 passer rating when targeted in Saturday's game against Auburn.

Williams had a 71.4 percent catch rate and averaged 20.2 yards after the catch in this one. Williams is a running back but was hyper-effective in the receiving game as well in this one with a 5/75/1 line through the air. Williams continues to be a dual-threat player out of the backfield, something that's sure to continue next week against Ole Miss.
Nov 4 - 11:54 AM

Texas A&M junior RB Traveon Williams rushed for 107 yards and two scores on 17 carries and caught five passes for 75 yards with a touchdown in a 28-24 loss to Auburn.

The Aggies fell to the Tigers, but it certainly wasn't Williams' (5'8/200) fault. He rumbled for a 38-yard score in the top of the second quarter, and he found paydirt again on a 14-yard screen from Kellen Mond. His third touchdown was a one-yard plunge in the third to make it 24-14 Aggies in the third. Texas A&M will likely look to get the ball in Williams' hands more often next Saturday against Ole Miss.
Nov 3 - 3:46 PM

Texas A&M junior Trayveon Williams rushed for 78 yards and one touchdown on 19 carries in Saturday's 26-23 win over South Carolina.

Williams (5'8/200) plunged in for three-yard touchdown to extend the Aggies lead to 26-16 with just 1:36 remaining to secure the road win. The junior didn't have his standard huge game -- he's averaged 164.5 rushing yards in the non-Alabama and non-Clemson games this season -- but this South Carolina defense was sturdy all game long. Williams will bring his eight touchdowns into the Aggies bye week before returning to a matchup with Mississippi State.
Oct 13 - 7:25 PM

Texas A&M junior Trayveon Williams rushed for 138 yards and one touchdown on 24 carries in Saturday's 20-14 overtime win over Kentucky.

Williams (5'9/200) scored the game winning touchdown in overtime to put undefeated Kentucky away after they missed a field goal to start OT. The junior was elusive tonight as he always is, and he has now eclipsed 128 rushing yards with at least one score in 4-of-6 games (he failed to do so against Clemson and Alabama). Williams and the Aggies (4-2) will travel to South Carolina next weekend.
Oct 6 - 10:55 PM

Texas A&M junior Trayveon Williams rushed for 152 yards and two scores on 29 carries in Saturday's 24-17 win over Arkansas.

What Williams lacked in explosion he made up in efficiency, grinding out over 150 yards with a long run of just 16 yards. Williams has run for 128 yards or more in the three games not against Alabama and Clemson (he was held to 31 yards apiece in those two). Williams has a tough matchup with Kentucky coming.
Sep 29 - 3:24 PM

Texas A&M junior Trayveon Williams rushed for 31 yards on eight carries in Saturday's 45-23 loss to Alabama.

Williams (5'9/200) has been Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde this season, blowing up for a combined 368 yards in wins over Northwestern State and UL-Monroe, but being held to a total of 62 yards by world-beaters Clemson and Alabama. The junior is talented, but no real surprise that he's had issues in those latter two contests. Those are probably the two best teams in the country. Look for Williams to run wild and free against Arkansas next weekend.
Sep 22 - 8:45 PM

Texas A&M junior RB Trayveon Williams rushed for 128 yards and one touchdown on 22 carries in Saturday's 48-10 win against UL-Monroe.

Williams (5'9/200) was able to get things rolling again after being held to 31 yards on 17 attempts last week against the Clemson Tigers. Against the much lesser Warhawks, Williams was able to average 5.8 yards per attempt and scored a touchdown from two yards out to put the Aggies on the board. Especially with Mond playing well at quarterback, Williams should have some big games but that might be tough against Alabama next week.
Sep 15 - 11:20 PM

Texas A&M junior RB Trayveon Williams was held to 31 yards rushing on 17 carries in Saturday's 28-26 loss to Clemson.

Williams (5'9/200) was a monster versus Northwestern State in Week 1, when he rushed for 240 yards and a trio of touchdowns. Clemson's defensive front more than kept him in check one week later, though. Salvaging his quiet day (by degrees anyway), he did notch three catches for 40 yards in the loss. While Williams has struggled with his consistency during his collegiate career, we'll give him a mulligan for this one given the competition. No mulligans if he's shut down by Louisiana-Monroe next weekend.
Sep 8 - 11:00 PM

Texas A&M junior RB Trayveon Williams rushed for 240 yards and three touchdowns on 20 carries in Thursday's 59-7 win over Northwestern State.

Williams was the reason why Texas A&M had the second most total yards in school history. On his first touch of the season, Williams ran for 73-yards before finding the end zone. He also scored from 40- and two-yards out. Coming off a 798-yard sophomore campaign, Williams has the making of a big junior season in the Aggies high powered offense. Williams will face debatably the best front seven in the country next week against Clemson.
Aug 31 - 12:34 AM

Texas A&M sophomore RB Trayveon Williams rushed seven times for 65 yards and a touchdown in the Belk Bowl on Friday against Wake Forest.

Williams had a two-yard touchdown in the first quarter, as the Aggies built a 14-0 lead, but the highlight of his day might have been a 43-yard gallop later in the game. He is a shifty back who will pair with the hammer Keith Ford to give incoming Jimbo Fisher quite the one-two punch in the backfield heading into 2018.
Fri, Dec 29, 2017 06:33:00 PM

Texas A&M sophomore RB Trayveon Williams rushed for 103 yards on 15 carries in Saturday's 42-27 loss to Auburn.

About darned time. This was the first time that Williams has gone over 100 yards rushing since he dropped 203 yards on UCLA in the season-opener. The 5-foot-9, 200-pounder is an electric back, but we saw him slow considerably in the second half of the 2016 season and the consistency just hasn't been there during the current campaign.
Sat, Nov 4, 2017 04:31:00 PM

Texas A&M sophomore RB Trayveon Williams rushed for 32 yards on 10 carries in Saturday's 35-14 loss to Mississippi State.

Williams has the potential to bust any run for a long touchdown, but it just hasn't come together this season, at least not since he rushed for 203 yards in the season-opener. Since then, the 5-foot-9, 200-pounder's top yardage effort was 72 yards against Arkansas back on September 23. He's been held to fewer than 60 yards in his other four games and has not averaged more than 5.0 YPC since the aforementioned opener. We honestly don't understand it, because the talent is most definitely present.
