Saquon Barkley wasted little time leaving his mark on the whiteout game Saturday. The Heisman hopeful rumbled 69 yards for a touchdown on Penn State’s second play from scrimmage, giving the Nittany Lions an early lead over 19th-ranked Michigan.

That’s certainly a good way to start one of the biggest games Penn State will play this season. But Barkley was far from done. The star running back added a 15-yard touchdown later in the first quarter to give the second-ranked Nittany Lions a 14-point lead.
Penn State fans were certainly pleased on Twitter:
