Penn State running back Saquon Barkley is likely causing nightmares for opposing defensive coordinators this season. He showcased why once again during the Nittany Lions’ contest against Iowa on Saturday night.
After breaking through the first line of the Hawkeyes’ defense on a sweep in the second quarter, Barkley cut up field and sprinted 57 yards for a touchdown to give Penn State a 14-0 lead.

It was Barkley’s longest touchdown run at Beaver Stadium in his career and helped Penn State gain a comfortable cushion over Iowa.

Barkley entered Saturday after gaining 207 rush yards against Purdue in a 62-24 win last week. The 5-foot-11, 223-pound sophomore has 11 touchdowns on the season and is approaching the century mark in rushing yards against Iowa.
