On the second play from scrimmage Saturday night against Michigan, Penn State’s Saquon Barkley made his presence known in a major way.
Barkley took the first carry of the game 69 yards to the house. Once he got past the line of scrimmage, nobody was going to stop him.

That's a 230 pound man running a 4.3. Best player in the draft. #Saquon

Some teams will have Barkley No. 1 on the draft board. That type of prospect. https://t.co/NiMnqcGgrA

Saquon Barkley ran for 69 yards on his first carry tonight; Michigan hadn't allowed that many total rush yards in 3 of its 1st 6 games.

The Wolverines are offensively challenged and needed a huge defensive game to stay with the Nittany Lions. This was not the start they were looking for, on the road in Happy Valley.
