Early in the year, Benny Snell wasn’t even getting touches for Kentucky’s offense. Now, he’s setting records.
With his second score on Saturday, Snell set the program record for rushing touchdowns by a freshman in a season, breaking the previous mark set by former quarterback/wide receiver Randall Cobb. It was Snell’s eight touchdown of the year.
Snell scored on a 18-yard run early in the fourth quarter to put the Wildcats ahead, 35-7, over Missouri. Watch how the play unfolded below:

Cobb’s record of seven touchdowns was set during his freshman season in 2008 while playing quarterback. He switched to wide receiver the following year, which he now plays for the Green Bay Packers.
Snell and fellow running back “Boom” Williams have Kentucky cruising against Mizzou. While Snell is having a big day, Williams is having quite the performance himself.
