LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Benny Snell Jr. has answered every challenge with a punishing rushing performance that further stokes the Kentucky running back's confidence.
The junior is getting plenty of chances thanks to the Wildcats' relentless defense, a strong combination that has the unbeaten program off to its best start in a decade.
Saturday night yielded a second Top 25 upset in three games for Kentucky (4-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference), which is No. 17 in The Associated Press poll after pushing No. 14 Mississippi State up and down the field in a soggy 28-7 victory . The Wildcats also beat then-No. 25 Florida 27-16 on Sept. 8. Snell rushed for four touchdowns against MSU to silence another opponent determined to make him eat his words after declaring himself the SEC's best back this summer.
