Texas A&M may bench QB Kenny Hill

Texas A&M quarterback Kenny Hill may be headed for the bench.

Offensive coordinator Jake Spavital says Hill and freshman Kyle Allen have been taking snaps with the first team this week and a starter for Saturday's game against Louisiana-Monroe will be decided later this week.

Hill won the job over Allen in fall camp and got off to a great start, throwing for a school-record 511 yards in his debut and leading the Aggies to a 5-0 start. He even earned the Kenny Trill nickname after two years of Johnny Football for Heisman winner Johnny Manziel.

Texas A&M has since dropped three straight, including a 59-0 loss to Alabama - the team's first shutout since 2003.

Allen has thrown for 264 yards and three touchdowns in four games.
