LEXINGTON, Ky. - Kentucky looks to bounce back after a loss to No. 6 Georgia when it travels to longtime rival Tennessee this weekend. The Wildcats have not won in Knoxville since 1984 but knocked off the Volunteers in Lexington last season with a touchdown in the final minute. Kickoff is 3:30 p.m. ET and the game will air on the SEC Network.
Junior running back Benny Snell, Jr. has continued his assault on the record books this season, piling up 1,008 yards with 10 scores. The Maxwell Award semifinalist owns the school record with 42 career touchdowns and has moved into second place UK's career rushing list (3,432) and career 100-yard games (16). He ranks 12th nationally and leads the SEC at 112 rush yards per game.
The UK defense, led by senior pass rusher extraordinaire Josh Allen, has a league-high 10 sacks and 14.5 TFL this season. His defensive unit is eighth nationally in scoring defense, allowing just 15.3 points per game, including four games of yielding 10 points or less. Allen has been named a semfinalist for the Chuck Bednarik Award and the Butkus Award and was recently awarded the Walter Camp Defensive Player of the Week as well as the SEC Defensive Player of the Week for the fourth time this season.
