Kentucky puts up 582 yards and beats Missouri 35-21, Cats one win away from bowl eligibility

By  | 

COLUMBIA, Missouri (WYMT) -- The Kentucky Wildcats ran over the Missouri Tigers Saturday.

Freshman running back Benny Snell Jr. ran for 192 yards and two touchdowns, junior running back Stanley “Boom” Williams ran for 182 yards and one touchdown and the Wildcats won their fourth SEC game of the season, 35-21, improving to 5-3 overall.

This marks the first time UK has had four wins in league play since 2006 and just the second time since 1999.

The Cats put up a total of 582 yards of offense.

Junior quarterback Stephen Johnson completed 14 of his 23 passes for 208 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.

When Kentucky went up 21-0, it was Snell's seventh touchdown of the season -- tying Randall Cobb's freshman record.

With the win, if Georgia were to beat Florida, the Wildcats could land in Lexington later today in first place of the SEC East.
