At this point in his career there’s no denying that Penn State running back Saquon Barkley is one of the best players in college football. Barkley added another big play to his personal highlight reel in Saturday’s game against Georgia State, as he took a Trace McSorley pass 85 yards for a touchdown.

No one was covering Barkley as he slipped out of the backfield, and no one touched him as he took the ball to the house, either.

According to ESPN Stats and Info, the 85-yard touchdown reception is the longest play of Barkley’s Penn State career, rushing or receiving.
