Penn State football highlights: Saquon Barkley is still amazing and can do it all
Barkley added a kick return touchdown and a passing touchdown to his resume
Saquon Barkley had his worst rushing output of the season on Saturday in Penn State's 45-14 win over Indiana. Barkley finished with only 56 yards on 20 carries, averaging a paltry 2.8 yards per carry.
And you know what?
His Heisman Trophy campaign only got stronger in the process.
That's because, even if Barkley wasn't finding a lot of running room on Saturday, he was doing everything else.
He began the game by returning the opening kickoff for a touchdown.

He caught four passes for 51 yards, including this sweet grab that he turned from a near disaster into a 36-yard gain.
Oh, and he threw a touchdown too. Because why not? He's Saquon Barkley; he can do that when he feels like it.

Seriously, shout out to Penn State coach James Franklin for clearly deciding that he's going to do everything he can to help his running back's Heisman campaign as long as it doesn't hurt his team's chance to win a game. Of course, it helps that all Barkley ever does is improve his team's chances of winning the game.
