Texas A&M thinks they will be able to stop Benny Snell, Kentucky’s run game
Texas A&M has a big game coming up on Saturday at home against Kentucky, and they seem to think they can handle the surprising Wildcats.
Some members of the Aggies spoke with the media on Monday about the upcoming game and talked specifically about stopping Kentucky’s rushing attack, which is led by Heisman candidate Benny Snell Jr.
“They run the ball really well, and we stop the run really well. So I’m looking forward to a tough, physical game,” linebacker Tyrel Dodson said.
Defensive lineman Kingsley Keke had similar things to say. He praised Kentucky while also saying they should be able to stop the Wildcats’ rushing game.
“They’re a good team. … They run the ball really well. That’s what we expect to stop. Big test. We do pretty well against the run, so that shouldn’t be a big deal for us, but they run the ball really well with Benny Snell. We’ll be ready to play for sure,” Keke said.
“We’re going to try to stop the run and make them one-dimensional and make them pass the ball. Our key is stopping the run, because they have a good running back and a good O-line.”
Kentucky has beaten Florida, Mississippi State and South Carolina to start off 3-0 in conference. Beating Texas A&M would be another impressive mark. And whether you qualify those remarks as trash talk or not, the Aggies will present a tough challenge.
