Saquon Barkley Wins Big Ten Offensive Player Of The Week Honors

For the fourth time in his career and second time this season, Saquon Barkley is the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week.

The star running back had a surreal performance in Iowa City as he helped his team pull off a last-second win against the Hawkeyes — finishing the game with a school record of 358 all-purpose yards, including his 211 rushing yards off 28 carries and a touchdown.

Oh yeah, he also did this:

His work against Iowa helped him surpass the 3,000-career rushing yards mark — becoming the seventh player in Penn State history to do so. He is just 842 yards away from breaking Evan Royster’s career rushing yards record.

Barkley is now the national leader in all-purpose yards and first in the Big Ten with 335 receiving yards.
