Overheard On Twitter: Penn State Sports Legends React To Saquon Barkley’s Iowa Game

The Nittany Lions narrowly avoided an upset at Kinnick Stadium Saturday night, scoring on the final drive to clinch the 21-19 win over the Hawkeyes.

Unsurprisingly, Saquon Barkley tallied yet another incredible performance, breaking his career high for all-purpose yards in a single game with 358 against Iowa. He also set a career high with 211 rushing yards, not to mention clocking in a Shaq-sized leap to seal his Heisman contention.

Penn State’s alumni contingent playing in the NFL was quick to notice, and they took to Twitter to praise the unparalleled junior running back.
