Saquon Barkley vs. Michigan (ABC, Saturday, 7 p.m.): The Penn State junior has been kept (relatively) in check in his last two games (36 carries, 131 yards, which includes a 53-yard touchdown) and things won’t get easier the next two weeks. The bad news: Penn State’s offensive line has been inconsistent. The worse news: Michigan’s defensive line is among the nation’s best, and the Nittany Lions have Ohio State’s even more fearsome front on deck. So what becomes of Barkley on the two biggest stages he’ll have all year? It should be fascinating to find out.
