Accolades continue to roll in for Barkley

UNIVERSITY PARK – The accolades continue to roll in for Saquon Barkley.

He was named the Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance against Ohio State on Saturday night in Columbus. It was Barkley’s fifth Big Ten weekly award of the season and second special teams honor.

Barkley earned the honor by returning the opening kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown that gave the Lions a 7-0 lead just seconds into the game.

Barkley has earned nine conference honors – five offensive, two freshman, two special teams during his collegiate career. Barkley’s five career offensive weekly honors are tied for ninth in Big Ten history

Barkley, a Heisman Trophy front-runner, is the first Nittany Lion with multiple kickoff returns for touchdowns since Derrick Williams did it in 2008. It also ties the school record, which is held by Williams, Chuck Peters (1940) and Curt Warner (1980).

Barkley finished the afternoon with 105 kickoff return yards.

Michigan State start time announced

Over the weekend, it was announced that the Nov. 4 game at Michigan State will kick at noon. It will be televised by FOX.
