With 6 more he will have all of the UK records.  All of them. 10.6 -- Penalties Kentucky's opponents commit per game, the most in the nation. 13 -- Texas A&M is the highest-ranked total offense the Cats have faced.  In Kentucky's three marquee wins, South Carolina is the highest-ranked total offense they've faced at No. 52 in America.  Miss. State is just behind them at No. 53 and Dan Mullen's Florida offense is ranked No. 93. 24 -- Total points A&M lost by to Clemson and Alabama.  Nobody has faced two tougher opponents.  The Aggies almost upset Clemson at Kyle Field and managed to cover in Tuscaloosa, even though the Crimson Tide blew the game open in the second half. 31 -- Games it took Benny Snell to reach 40 touchdowns.  Only Herschel Walker reached the milestone faster.  The Georgia Heisman Trophy winner got to 40 TDs in just 27 games. 35:52 -- The average time of possession Texas A&M has in a football game.  They're the only team in the SEC who possesses the ball longer than UK. 108 -- As great as Texas A&M's front seven is at stopping the run, the back four is equally as bad at stopping the pass.  They are ranked 108 out of 130 FBS teams in pass defense. 187.8 -- The average rushing yards per game for UK's Benny Snell and Terry Wilson.  Texas A&M's one-two punch is not far behind.  Kellen Mond and Trayveon Williams gain on average 159.4 yards per game on the ground. 420 -- Yards Benny Snell has gained after contact.  That's 65 percent of Snell's rushing yards.  Not too shabby.
