Saquon Barkley is Officially a Heisman Frontrunner

After a week for the record books, PSU’s starting running back is now almost everyone’s pick.

NCAA Football: Penn State at Iowa Reese Strickland-USA TODAY Sports

This week, Saquon Barkley put on a show under the lights in Kinnick Stadium against giant-killer Iowa, logging 358 all-purpose yards (a Penn State school record, and in the top ten all time for FBS schools). The hype surrounding him is now resounding, from all spectrums of the sports world, and it’s justified.

Vegas is now taking notice as well.

The full spectrum of Heisman odds as of this week’s slate of games won’t be released until later this week, but Barkley will likely surpass Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield as the odds-on candidate.

It’s super tough to ride that wave throughout the entire season, and all Barkley has to do (aside from continue to will his team to victory), is do Saquon Barkley things.
