In 2017 we saw Benny Snell make history.
The Kentucky running back proved he’s one of the best to ever play the position at UK by snapping the school’s career rushing touchdown record. He surpassed Moe Williams and Sonny Collins by scoring 28 touchdowns in just 20 games.
The record-setting touchdown was the most boring of the day as Snell walked into the end zone untouched, so I’ll start the highlight with the wild fumble from Lynn Bowden that set up the score.
Snell’s record day happened during the most fun game of the 2017 season. Benny had 3 touchdowns and 117 yards, Sihiem King had a pair of scores, Bowden made big plays and the UK defense picked off Kyle Shurmur four times (his season total entering the game) to win 44-21.
Snell has snapped several UK records in just two years. After his third year, the UK record book will never be the same.
