COLLEGE STATION (AP) — Trevor Knight threw for 344 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another score to lead No. 20 Texas A&M to a 67-0 rout of Prairie View A&M on Saturday.

Knight finished 21 of 37 and threw touchdowns of 8 yards to Speedy Noil and 34 and 64 yards to Christian Kirk in the second quarter as the Aggies (2-0) built a 38-0 halftime lead. Knight also rushed for a game-high 78 yards on seven carries in just over one half of play.

The Aggies extended its home non-conference win streak to 23 games. Texas A&M outgained the Panthers 672-205 in earning its largest shutout since defeating Missouri 73-0 on Sept. 18, 1993.

Texas A&M managed a 22-yard field goal in the first 10 minutes before busting the game open over the final 18 minutes of the half.

Keith Ford, who had two touchdowns, had an 11-yard scoring run with three minutes left in the opening quarter before Knight tight-roped the sideline for the final 5 yards of a 32-yard TD scamper to end the first.

Prairie View (1-1), which plays in the FCS Southwestern Athletic Conference, had a 38-yard field goal blocked and missed a 42-yard field goal in the first half.

Trey Green threw for 160 yards on 13 of 39 passing, but the Aggies’ defense had pressure on Green throughout the game.
