Kentucky junior running back Benny Snell is just days away from stepping onto the field for the final time as a Wildcat.

Snell announced his decision to declare for the NFL Draft earlier this month.

The running back says he is enjoying every moment that he can with his teammates.

"I really kind of don't like thinking about it," Snell said Saturday morning at a news conference in Orlando. "I am living for the moment, you know what I'm saying? But, yeah, I've been enjoying every moment I can with my teammates, with my coaches. I'm excited for the game as well. And we're in Orlando. I'm having fun. I love the weather, but, you know, my time's come. I've enjoyed every moment I have. Like I always say, I'm living my dream still. I'm still living it, you know, so I'm enjoying it."

Snell only needs 106 yards to tie Sonny Collins (1972-75) for first in career rushing yards for Kentucky.

His final opportunity to snap that record will be on New Year's Day against Penn State at 1 p.m. on ABC.
