Penn State running back Saquon Barkley has found another way to score.

The explosive junior entered Saturday’s game against Indiana with 36 career touchdowns, all from rushing or receiving. That changed when he took the opening kickoff against Indiana back 98 yards for a touchdown, the first return score of his career.

Barkley entered the day ranked first nationally with 253.3 all-purpose yards per game and 11th nationally with 129.5 yards rushing per game.

His touchdown started a barrage. The fourth-ranked Nittany Lions led the Hoosiers 28-0 at the end of the first quarter.
