Saquon Barkley did not take long to find the end zone on Saturday night. On Penn State’s second play from scrimmage, Barkley took a direct snap 69 yards for a touchdown less than one minute into the Nittany Lions’ 42-13 win.
Barkley ended up scoring three touchdowns on Saturday night — two on the ground and another on a bobbling catch out of the backfield. The sensational junior bolstered his Heisman campaign, and he also extended an impressive streak.
The Michigan game was Barkley’s 14th consecutive game scoring a touchdown. It’s the longest streak in the nation, according to E SPN Stats and Info.
The last game Barkley didn’t celebrate in the end zone? That was during Penn State’s upset of Ohio State last season when Barkley had 99 yards on the ground and no receiving yards.
Barkley will have a chance to score against the Buckeyes, and get another key win, in one of the biggest games of the regular season Saturday.
You thought @saquonb21 was going to drop two big passes in one night?
