The heart of the Cats


LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Ride the horse.  UK offensive coordinator Eddie Gran loves him a steady dose of Benny Snell when it’s working.

In the preseason during some of the sports science type testing, Mark Stoops noted Snell’s heart rate comes back down to normal faster than anyone on the team.

Does that play into keeping the big bruiser behind center as the leading SEC rusher by a large number of carries?

It was certainly on display against Tennessee when Snell rushed for 180 and 3 touchdowns (the most ever against UT) and again versus Ole Miss.

Hear from Gran in the video.
