Saquon Barkley runs through ESPN Sport Science’s ‘weather test’

Saquon Barkley has run all over opposing defenses during his first two seasons at Penn State. This offseason, he faced some different tests.

Barkley teamed up with ESPN’s Sport Science to run through the “weather test.” Sport Science tested Barkley on how well he ran in different weather conditions, simulating heat, rain and cold. Barkley ran through a short obstacle course with the weather conditions applied and they were compared to his baseline test.

The full video can be found here. But not much slowed Barkley down.

Penn State fans will be happy to know that Barkley completed the course quicker than Ezekiel Elliott did, even after Barkley spent 10 minutes under 170-degree heaters.

The elements will be perfect inside the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium for the College Football Playoff Championship Game, where Penn State fans hope Barkley can lead the Nittany Lions at the end of the 2017 season.
