Penn State coach James Franklin discusses balancing needs of Saquon Barkley

Penn State coach James Franklin discusses balancing needs of Saquon Barkley”

In that game, a 45-31 Penn State victory at Memorial Stadium where the Hoosiers led 24-14 late in the third quarter, IU limited Barkley to 58 yards on 33 carries. But let's be clear: They are not Saquon Barkley. It has had eight running backs finish in the top 10 of the Heisman Trophy race, including 1973 victor John Cappelletti, 1994 runner-up Ki-Jana Carter and top-five finishers Lydell Mitchell (1971), Curtis Enis (1997) and Larry Johnson (2002).

Penn State can not match USC's deserved Tailback U label, because it hasn't had the national star power, including five Trojans tailback who have won the Heisman.

Penn State football coach James Franklin wants his players to be able to express themselves on important social issues, such as recent NFL protests, and explained why in poignant fashion Tuesday afternoon. Two Penn State running backs, Franco Harris and Lenny Moore, are in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Penn State's players will wear white cleats, instead of their usual black, for Saturday's game against IN as part of the program's "Generations of Greatness" game at Beaver Stadium. Strictly based on college performance, Curt Warner - best career, a big part of PSU's first national title team in 1982 - is probably the most popular answer.

Penn State dominated play, outgaining Iowa 579-273, outrushing the Hawkeyes 295-82 and winning time of possession by a 40/20 margin.

Saquon Barkley is a cheat code.

The former Whitehall star had a career-high 211 rushing yards, 94 receiving yards and 53 yards in returns for 358 all-purpose yards, a team record.

While Penn State kept its unbeaten record intact, Iowa is left attempting to regroup from the disappointing defeat. The Hawkeyes got a lot of pressure on Trace McSorley and took away the Lions' trademark deep passes, but even the best game plan can't necessarily stop Barkley. "He nearly didn't even make a move and squirted out of it".

Still, the players are not expecting too much to change with the tradition.

That's a walk-off home run, right @McSorley_IX?

While it's clear that Barkley has a ridiculous amount of natural ability, the reason he's being talked about like a potential top overall NFL Draft pick is the hard work he puts in off the field. "But it will be good having Chasz back with his size and length there."Davis made 22-of-24 tries previous year with Tyler Yazujian as snapper and Chris Gulla as holder".

Offensively, Penn State football averages 40.5 points and 496.5 total yards (282.5 in passing and 214.0 in rushing) per game.

As mentioned above, IN opened this season with a 49-21 loss to Ohio State, but the Hoosiers led that game 21-20 late into the third quarter before fading. He is 11th in the nation in rushing at 129.5 yards per game. He has rushed for 518 yards and four touchdowns in four games and has caught 23 passes for 335 yards and two more scores. DaeSean Hamilton had 46 yards in two catches. Davis is 4-for-8 this year."I think the snaps and the holds have been pretty good, for the most part", Franklin said. It's something that we appreciate and something that we want to continue to keep going. McSorley to Johnson won the game to cap a drive for the ages, but Barkley was the story of the entire night. The exception is quarterback Richard Lagow, a junior college transfer.
