Penn State running back Saquon Barkley

Saquon Barkley had already rocked Ohio State in this game, taking the opening kickoff 97 yards to the house. Then in the second quarter, Penn State already up by the score of 14-3, Barkley his third carry of the game 36 yards for his second score of the game, skirting the left sideline to get into the end zone.

This second score put the Nittany Lions up huge, 21-3, early in this game. It also got folks on social media riled up.

It’s clear at this point that the Heisman Trophy is Barkley’s to lose. It’s also clear that Penn State is a dynamo, and that James Franklin needs to keep using Barkley as much as possible.
