I dunno about Kentucky at 46.

Granted, our second option is a relatively untested junior who couldn't win much playing time last year behind Snell and Williams; but Snell is one of the best RBs in the conference (which means the country). I feel like we are ranked 46 solely on the expectations of Snell putting up big enough numbers to compete with RB duos all on his own; but King showed flashes of potential last year. I don't think he is going to be setting the world on fire, but he has the capability to break a few long runs every game.

One thing I know for certain is that UK will average more yards on the ground per game than any team on that list outside of 1-9.

Benny Snell is a beast. I have no idea why he didn't start playing for UK until after they were blown out by Florida.
