Saquon Barkley turned in an eye-catching performance in win over Iowa

Posted September 26, 2017

There were a couple of reasons.

Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz offered a positive credit report as well: "Looking at them in person, they're playing at a high level". I've talked to a lot of people. It was a gutty throw by McSorley, who was off his game on this night. "First time being here, it was electric".

On Saturday night the Nittany Lions went into one of the toughest night environments in the Big Ten at Kinnick Stadium and knocked off the Iowa Hawkeyes by a score of 21-19. Two of their players won weekly Big Ten honors - running back Morgan Ellison as freshman of the week, and J-Shun Harris as special teams player of the week. After all, they've allowed just one touchdown. He had ten alone on that hurdle drive, which looked like it was going to put the game away until Penn State missed a chip-shot field goal, and while he was less active on the game-winning drive, he picked up eight important yards on a third-and-ten, then caught a 14-yard pass to put the Nittany Lions ten yards away from the end zone. Barkley looks faster than a speeding bullet and in at least one instance leaped over a lunging cornerback in a single bound.

Penn State pummeled Iowa past year at Beaver Stadium, 41-14. Mcsorley completed a pass to Saeed Blacknall, his first catch of the night, for six yards and a first down. We know that Barkley possesses tremendous straight-line speed-he clocked a 4.33 40-Yard Dash during the offseason-but he also showcased explosive lateral agility during Saturday's game.

Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio State - Campbell is a big-play receiver who can stretch the field. The recently retired Minnesota Vikings linebacker waved his cap exuberantly and exhorted the crowd.

The former IN high school standout entered Penn State with sub-4.7 40-yard-dash speed and his long strides coupled with his cutting ability made him a good dual-threat candidate to lead Moorhead's offense. As we've seen with the high-powered Penn State offense, opposing teams need all the scoring they can get. You could see the determination even if you were in the 57th row.

The play was more hard than it looked, Barkley said, particularly that over-the-shoulder catch. The Iowa offense was nearly a complete no-show.

Barkley greatly helped his Heisman Trophy hopes, carrying 28 times for 211 yards.

Thirteen of the Huskers' shots came in the first half but they just couldn't find the back of the net. The defense was just as strong, holding the Nittany Lions to a season-low.227 hitting percentage.

With his effort against the Hawkeyes, Barkley became the seventh player in Penn State history to have 3,000 career rushing yards. Then the Nittany Lions have a bye ahead of a two-week stretch that'll define their season, playing MI at home and Ohio State on the road to end October.

The three ministers also voiced their "strong commitment" to maintain Iraq's territorial and political unity. The country has the largest Kurdish population in the region and is already battling a Kurdish insurgency.

The Hawkeyes turned a short pass to running back Akrum Wadley into a 70-yard score with 10:02 left to close within 15-13.

Seniors Annika Albrecht, Briana Holman and Kelly Hunter led the charge for the inspired Huskers.

It was a classic anyway.

"I'm trying to think of the last time we played a back like this, other than past year", Ferentz said, referring to Barkley's 167-yard game against the Hawkeyes.

The UN secretary general was hopeful that the document would help bolster global efforts to eliminate weapons of mass destruction. French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian has called the treaty "wishful thinking" that is "close to irresponsible".
