The Kentucky Wildcats were in Missouri today facing another SEC East opponent in another winnable game. They have already ground out victories against Vanderbilt and South Carolina. Today the ground game was humming in Columbia, MO.
Getting lit up on the ground was one of the primary concerns that Missouri fans and media members focused on in the days leading up to the game.
Until Missouri proves it can slow down Kentucky’s run game, nothing else matters https://t.co/5vUCC1icqr

Although they knew it was coming, Missouri was powerless to stop it as not one but two (Benny Snell 192 yds, Boom Williams 182 yds) Kentucky running backs went for career high days against the Tigers.

Kentucky ran up and down Faurot Field to the tune of 377 yards. Williams did his thing with the game breaking long runs. His 60 yard scamper was fun to watch. Snell pounded the Tigers into submission and also got loose for some
nice runs also.
The offensive line continues for click on all cylinders and the defense has continued to round into shape. Kentucky, picked fourth in the SEC East, now finds itself in the upper tier of the division and could end the day in first place depending on the outcome of the Georgia-Florida game. A Bulldogs victory would leave Kentucky all alone atop the East.
Up next for the Cats (5-3, 4-2 SEC) is a home game against those Georgia Bulldogs and their highly touted running game led by Nick Chubb.
Kentucky can confidently say they have the running game to go toe to toe with them.
