The true freshman running back from Westerville, OH carried the Cats to victory in the fourth quarter, picking up 77 yards on 11 straight run plays chewing up 10:21 on the way into the end zone. Snell showed determination on each of his 11 carries, never being tackled by the first defender and fighting for critical extra yards. After a seven yard run by Stephen Johnson to get the Cats on the one yard line Snell took a direct snap and shook off one defender into the end zone to take a lead that wouldn’t be surrendered. The combination of Snell and Stanley “Boom” Williams was lethal for Kentucky in Commonwealth Stadium on Saturday night.
Kentucky Football needed last night
The Cats picked up a huge SEC victory beating South Carolina 17-10 in a game that wasn’t all that pretty but hey we’ll take it. Mark Stoops had his team ready to play on Saturday night as we saw the defense give its best performance of the year sacking freshman QB Brandon McIllwain four times and only giving up 10 points to the Gamecocks. Denzil Ware had his best performance at Kentucky on Saturday night finishing with five tackles and two sacks. Bring on Alabama!
