Here’s a look at the sweet trick play.

In a game that saw Barkley struggle to gain yards on the ground, he certainly found ways to make himself valuable nevertheless.

At this point, Barkley really does have to be the Heisman favorite. Though, there are plenty of other players nipping at his heels, and there’s a ton left to be determined not yet halfway though the 2017 season.
