Saquon Barkley sets PSU record with 92-yard TD run

  What a bookend it was to Saquon Barkley's brilliant junior year.

Barkley’s Saturday got off to a pretty good start: his first six carries went for a combined 115 yards and a pair of touchdowns. This, his second score of the game, put the Nittany Lions up 28-7 over Washington with more than half the game to play. The Nittany Lions went on to win, 35-28.

The touchdown was Barkley’s 18th rushing score of the year, tying his career-high from last season.

Barkely finished the night with 18 carries for 137 yards and two touchdowns, and seven catches for 38 yards.
