Saquon Barkley is one of the NFL's best running backs, even at his younger age, but prior to being in the backfield for the G-Men, he had climbed his way into the conversation as one of the most impressive running backs in college football at Penn State.

Every week in Happy Valley, it seemed we would get a new and incredible Bakley highlight play. One of the more memorable ones was his long touchdown run against in-state rival Temple. Barkley broke through the first line of defense and was gone like a bat out of hell.

Despite the secondary having a huge head start, Barkley still blew by them and ran it in for a score to extend Penn State's lead.

While this highlight was from the 2016 season, Barkley's rise and improvements carried him all the way to becoming the No. 2 overall pick by the New York Giants in the 2017 NFL Draft.
