Penn State star Saquon Barkley got Beaver Stadium rocking on the first play of the game with a 98-yard kick return touchdown.

The amazing play got fans fired up — but it also really excited ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit.

The analyst didn’t waste much time in tweeting his reaction to Barkley’s return. Herbstreit started his tweet with 24 emojis.

“(Saquon Barkley) already did it!!!!! Kid just ISN’T fair!!!!! #OpeningKickOff” Herbstreit tweeted.

This isn’t the first time Barkley has impressed the internet.

Barkley has become perhaps the Heisman Trophy favorite. Against Iowa last week, Barkley rushed for 221 yards, had 94 receiving yards and 53 kick return yards. Coming into the game, Barkley even led the Big Ten in receiving yards (335) this season.

In response to Barkley’s performance last week, Herbstreit named Barkley his top performer in the country for Week 4. The way Barkley started Saturday’s Week 5 game against Indiana, it’s possible Barkley might make Herbstreit’s list again.
