Less than one minute into Penn State's Senior Day tilt with Nebraska, Saquon Barkley drove a stake through the hearts of the Husker faithful with a signature 65-yard touchdown run. It would be a day full of highlights for No. 26, as he ended the contest with 224 total yards and three rushing touchdowns.
His trips to the end zone set the career mark for the Lions with 39 rushing scores, topping Penn State legend Lydell Mitchell. For his efforts, he was named the Big Ten's Co-Offensive Player of the Week along with Purdue wide receiver Anthony Mahoungou.

Notably, this is Barkley's sixth conference player of the week award this season, as he's received praise for his production on offense and on special teams.
Barkleys six Player of the Week honors this season (four offensive, two special teams) are the most in a single season in Big Ten history (doesnt include Freshman of the Week).
