We knew Benny Snell’s usage would be going up with the departure of Boom Williams, but I don’t know if anyone expected numbers like this.
Snell is leading the SEC in rushing attempts on the year.
Nationally, he is tied with three other backs at fourth overall in rushing attempts, with the leader being D’Angelo Brewer at Tulsa with 98 carries.
Snell is also 38th nationally in rushing yards on the season:
Kentucky’s premier back started out the year slow against Southern Miss, but he has followed it up with two consecutive 100-yard outings.
And I doubt he plans on slowing down anytime soon.
