This second score put the Nittany Lions up huge, 21-3, early in this game. It also got folks on social media riled up.
We are rapidly approaching the "Saquon wins the Heisman no matter what happens now" portion of the season.

Sometimes it is as simple as one teaming having Saquon and the other team doesn't.

Saquon Barkley is so good he is also the head referee of the Fla/Ga game.

Saquon’s more dynamic than Ezekiel Elliott and doesn’t come with any off-the-field concerns. He’s a top-5 pick.

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.
