It’s gonna be strength on strength tonight in College Station.
Kentucky has one of the nation’s most productive ground games, averaging 259.2 rushing yards per game (11th nationally) with Benny Snell Jr. leading the way. The junior is fourth in the FBS with 132.8 rushing yards per game but he’ll face his stiffest test yet against a Texas A&M defense that has held opponents to 85 yards per game. The Aggies have already played two good running teams in Clemson (115 yards, 2 TDs, 3.6 yards per carry) and Alabama (109, 2, 3.9), and have surrendered a total of five rushing touchdowns in five games.
I took Kentucky in the FP because I thought the spread was a little generous, but if TAMU can limit Snell, it’s gonna make for a tough night for the ‘Cats.
