Video: Penn State RB Saquon Barkley's Hurdle Over A Buffalo Defender Was Absurd

Penn State just scored to take a 20-7 lead over Buffalo early in the fourth quarter in Happy Valley. The Nittany Lions' reached the end zone on a short pass from Christian Hackenberg to DaeSean Hamilton, but it was freshman running back Saquon Barkley who did the heavy lifting on the scoring drive.

Barkley ripped off a 33-yard gain, and on the ensuing play, took a hand-off and dashed through the middle of the Buffalo defense. A Bull defender tried to tackle him low, and it was a bad idea. Barkley hurdled him cleanly in an impressive display of athleticism.

That was sick. Barkley has been a definite bright spot for a PSU offense still looking to find itself.
