The Texas A&M Aggies will not be looking past Kentucky when the Wildcats head to College Station Saturday night.
Yesterday the players spoke to the media about the matchup. If you’re searching for bulletin board material, it’s hard to find. Wide receiver Camron Buckley’s statement is the closest thing to resemble trash-talk.
“I didn’t even know they were a top 15 team,” he said.
The Aggies’ middle linebacker and defensive captain knew the Cats were a Top 25 team.
“We’re very excited to play a Top 25 team,” said Dodson. “They’re a very physical team and Benny’s a good running back, so I’m looking forward to playing them.”
Dodson added, “They run the ball really well and we stop the run really well, so I’m looking forward to a tough, physical game. This is why you come to Texas A&M. This is why you come to the SEC, to play games like this.”
Texas A&M has the chops to stop Snell. The Aggies have the top-ranked rush defense in the SEC, surrendering just 85 yards a game; only five defenses in America have allowed fewer rushing yards. That defense will be put to the test against the SEC’s leading rusher.
“We do pretty well against the run. That shouldn’t be a big deal for us, but they run the ball really well with Benny Snell so we’ll be ready to play,” said defensive end Kingsley Keke.
