It’s deja vu all over again for Saquon Barkley and the Penn State Nittany Lions.
The dynamic running back/ kick returner got the Nittany Lions on the board without the offense ever needing to take the field.
Barkley took the opening kickoff to the house for 97 yards to give the No. 2 Nittany Lions an early lead over the No. 6 Ohio State Buckeyes in their crucial Big Ten clash on Saturday afternoon.

The score puts Ohio State immediately behind the eight-ball. It also extended Saquon Barkley’s FBS leading streak of scoring a touchdown in 15 straight games.Moments later, the Nittany Lions put up another score on a Trace McSorely touchdown pass to take a 14-0 lead.
Everyone went into the game knowing that minimizing Saquon Barkley would be the key to Ohio State coming away with a victory. Less than 10 seconds into the game, they’ve already struggled to do that.
If the Buckeyes don’t stop the bleeding soon, they might find themselves in too big a hole to dig themselves out of.
