College football landscape reacts to Penn State RB Saquon Barkley getting snubbed

Heading into this past weekend, Penn State running back Saquon Barkley was on the shortlist for three major college football awards.

Now, nearly a week later, the stellar back will not be going home with the Heisman, Walter Camp or Doak Walker Awards.

The college football world has already reacted to Barkley’s Heisman snub, but the Nittany Lion community once again had his back after missing out on the other two awards Thursday.

Here’s former Penn State running back Curtis Enis, who called Barkley the greatest running back in school history earlier this week.

Teammate Marcus Allen also came out with another tweet of support after Bryce Love won the Walker Award as the nation’s top back.

Barkley did get a fair share of other honors this week, though.

He was named a Walter Camp All-American, won the Chicago Tribune Silver Football, was named the AP Big Ten Player of the Year and won the Paul Hornung Award as the country’s most versatile player.
