Keys to the Game: Texas A&M
1. Ignore the Theatrics
Ignore the midnight yell, ignore the chants and ignore the noise. This team is not playing the fans. They playing Texas A&M. This team has played in loud environments. They know how to silence crowds. Don’t let a few chants through you off your game.
2. Ground and Pound
UK needs both Benny Snell and AJ Rose to do what they do best. Snell Jr must commit to the North and South game while Rose overwhelms them with East and West game. There will be at least two drives that Eddie Grand will send Snell. Rose must be ready to through this stout rush defense off balance with his unique running style.
3. Cruise control defense for one half.
With the absence of Cash Daniel in the first half due to his targeting penalty against South Carolina this defense has to stay disciplined and play angry until Cash Daniel makes his “Stone Cold Steve Austin” entrance in the second half.
4. Benny Snell, please stay pissed.
Time and time again Benny Snell and this team have been disrespected! This week is no exception. Not only is this unranked, Texas A&M favored, but they also expressed how UK’s run game should “a big issue”. Look for Benny Snell to play violent, run angry and be pissed.
