Penn State's Marcus Allen Commends Heisman Candidate Saquon Barkley's Uniqueness

Andrew Gould@AndrewGould4Featured ColumnistOctober 2, 2017

Penn State's Saquon Barkley did it all in Saturday's 45-14 victory over Indiana.

The Heisman Trophy candidate returned the opening kickoff for a 98-yard touchdown. Despite averaging a subpar 2.8 yards per run, he compiled 56 rushing and 51 receiving yards before cementing the Nittany Lions' win with a touchdown pass to DaeSean Hamilton.

Following the running back's versatile performance, Penn State safety Marcus Allen praised his teammate to Josh Moyer of the Centre Daily Times

"He's always doing something unique, something that the average human can't do," Allen said.

Per Moyer, offensive lineman Ryan Bates also complimented the junior.

"We're never surprised by his ability," Bates said. "You can give him the rock, and he can do anything. He's a one-of-a-kind player."

Barkley has bolstered his Heisman candidacy with 1,218 all-purpose yards for the 5-0 Nittany Lions. He can fortify his standing as a top contender with strong performances against Big Ten powerhouses Michigan and Ohio State later this month.
