Kentucky's offense looking to carry momentum forward to Missouri

10/26/2016 08:00 PM

Kentucky’s offense has finally found their identity running the ball. The Wildcats are averaging nearly 200 rushing yards per game, thanks in large part to the emergence of freshman running back Benny Snell.

Snell, who is coming off of his second 100-yard game this season, was named SEC freshman of the week on Monday and will look to have another big game against the Missouri Tigers, who are 2-5 and are in last place in the SEC East.

Kentucky’s offense as a whole is hoping to exploit a Tiger defense that is giving up 29.7 points per game and will be without their leading tackler, Michael Scherer, who suffered an ACL injury.

We discussed the offense’s potential as they head into a crucial match-up against the Tigers.
