Saquon Barkley will look to carry the Penn State Nittany Lions to another victory on the road against the Northwestern Wildcats.There’s almost nothing that Saquon Barkley can’t do. He can run, catch and break tackles like none other in college football. As he chases down the Heisman Trophy, the Penn State Nittany Lions chase down yet another conference crown and more.On Saturday, they’ll have a chance to pick up their next conference win and officially become bowl eligible when they face Northwestern on the road. With five wins under their belt already, Penn State is cruising along on the season.
The Nittany Lions flew past the Hoosiers last week in a 45-14 victory, meaning they’ opponents 207-47 in the first five weeks of the season. The closest the team came to a loss was against Iowa in Week 4 on the road, where a narrow 2-point victory was enough to keep undefeated season alive. Northwestern on the other hand, came out strong in the first half against No. 9 Wisconsin last week, but it fell apart in the second half and couldn’t contain the Badgers offense. The Badgers offense is loaded, but not quite Saquon Barkley loaded, so the Wildcats’ defense is in for a long day Saturday.
For Penn State, getting the win and then the bye week right after will be huge. After this week comes to a close, the Nittany Lions will be on the bye and then will have two straight games against Michigan and Ohio State. If they want to win the Big Ten once again and work toward making the College Football Playoff, those are the two games that are ultimately going to decide everything. Right now though, it’s a chance to get more momentum heading into the bye.
