Texas A&M Players Looking Forward to Playing Against Benny Snell

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.

    It might be tough sledding against A&M for the first three quarters, but when that fourth quarter, “money” time comes around, we are so blessed to have the best back in the business. I think they MIGHT hold him in check for a bit, but Benny runs wild in the fourth and we take home a very tough win. I think Benny runs for about 105-115 yards and two scores and we win 21-17. This could be the toughest game of the season. GO CATS!!!!

  6. Saturday Dick Gabriel said that Muschamp had told his team last Monday to not say a WORD about Benny Snell. lol

    I think this quote shows the progress Stoops has made with this program. For years Kentucky has been an afterthought and treated as a bye week for SEC opponents and Mark Stoops has turned us into competitors and a game opponents look forward to. Regardless of how we finish the season I’m excited about the future of our program. Go Cats!

    Miss state was a good defensive team too . Just happens to be is that after about 1.5 quarters the cracks in the d start to show and we’ll exploit that too. I hope the give Aj a few series in second half it really helps out if we showcase both of our a+ rbs

      A&M has played a much tougher schedule, so the rushing defense might be legit. Will need to rely on Terry Wilson much more in this game, in my opinion.

    Every team should follow A&M’s lead when it comes to talking about the upcoming opponent.
