Mrs. Tyler Thompsonover 3 years


After scoring four touchdowns vs. one of the best run defenses in the country, Benny Snell is a Heisman candidate. Snell’s odds to win the award jumped from 200-1 to 80-1 after Kentucky’s win over Mississippi State:

CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd ranked Benny fourth in his Week 4 Heisman Hype rankings:

“I’m going to let that just be in the air,” Benny said when asked if he thought he deserved to be a Heisman candidate after the game Saturday night. “It is what it is. My play speaks for itself.”

“Benny For Heisman” signs and shirts were all over Kroger Field on Saturday, and he left the field to “HEISMAN” chants:

Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa is going to win the award, but it’s great to see Benny finally get some of the respect he deserves.
