Snell rushed for 1,305 yards and 14 touchdowns this season and has rushed for over 1,000 yards in each of his three seasons with the school.
The Wildcats are about to make their third straight bowl appearance, and Snell has played a major role in the rise of the program under head coach Mark Stoops.
Kentucky will play Penn State in the Citrus Bowl on New Years’ Day.
