Here's what he had to say.

NCAA.com: What is the best dish you can cook?

Saquon Barkley: "Best dish I can cook is chicken, rice and potatoes."

NCAA.com: What is the best road environment in the Big Ten?

SB: "Iowa’s stadium, easily. Kinnick Stadium. The way it’s set up and how close it is, they only seat like 70,000 but it sounds like 120,000 in there, it’s so close to you, so definitely Kinnick Stadium.”

NCAA.com: Who is your favorite current college football player to watch that's not one of your teammates?

SB: “I’m going to have to go with either (Stanford running back Bryce) Love or (Oklahoma quarterback) Baker (Mayfield). If I could pick my teammate, Trace McSorley.”

NCAA.com: Where is your dream vacation spot?

SB: “I was actually thinking about that, people said Malibu.”

NCAA.com: What is the single greatest play you've made in your career?

SB: “Touchdown run against Minnesota (last season), overtime. It was a great call, O-line blocked it perfect and I was able to get one-on-one with the safety and score.”
