That’ll do, Saquon. That’ll do.

Not sure if you’ve heard the news, but Saquon Barkley is pretty darn good at playing football.

Apparently, the Big Ten Conference is aware of this and rewarded the junior running back with a handful of accolades on Wednesday.

Mostly notably, Barkley was named the conference’s Graham-George offensive player of the year after racking up an incredible 1,728 yards from scrimmage and 19 touchdowns.

He was also named the Ameche-Dayne running back of the year, totaling 1,134 yards on the ground and 16 touchdowns along the way.

Lastly, Barkley was named the conference’s Rodgers-Dwight return specialist of the year. He returned 15 kicks for 426 yards, an average of 28.4 yards per return, and two touchdowns.

If this is to be Barkley’s final season in blue and white, he’s certainly going out with a bang.
