Minnesota did a pretty good job bottling up explosive PSU star running back Saquon Barkley all day, but he made the biggest play of the day when it mattered most.On Penn State’s first play of overtime, down 29-26, Barkley burst through the line on a draw and took it to the house, handing the Nittany Lions a 29-26 Big Ten win.The. End. Saquon Barkley needs just one play for the game-winning score in OT for @PennStateFball.— Penn State On BTN (@PennStateOnBTN) October 1, 2016It was not a vintage Saquon Barkley game, for the most part. Minnesota held him to just 3.2 yards per carry—he totaled 63 yards on 20 carries, including the 25 yard score. Quarterback Trace McSorley was actually the more effective rusher, with 73 yards on just eight rushes, and a score of his own. On the first play of overtime, however, offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead called Barkley’s number, and it paid off.After the win, Barkley thanked his coach for trusting in him, during a pretty cool moment on the field.Saquon Barkley to OC Joe Moorhead after the TD: “Way to trust me, baby. Way to trust me.”— Audrey Snyder (@audsnyder4) October 1, 2016The win is a huge one for Penn State, pushing the program to 3-2 on the year.
