Penn State RB Saquon Barkley was named the Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week after returning the opening kickoff for a touchdown in the Nittany Lions’ 45-14 win over Indiana.
“That’s another example of why we said we wanted to use Saquon Barkley as a kickoff returner,” Penn State coach Franklin said after the game. “It’s a play in [which] we know we can get the ball in his hands in space. Obviously, it paid off for us [Saturday].”
The man does it all. Everything, really.

Both touchdowns will only add to Barkley’s Heisman campaign.
