STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - When running back Saquon Barkley arrived on Penn State's campus last summer, all he wanted was playing time. "I really tried to compete with the older guys and get in the playbook early," Barkley said Wednesday night. "I didn't expect to have, like, a 1,000-yard season, but I really wanted to play as a freshman. That was my ultimate goal. " To be exact, Barkley finished the season with 1,076 rushing yards, breaking the university record for single-season rushing yards by a freshman.

Five numbers that mattered in the Eagles' 23-20 win over Buffalo: 15 LeSean McCoy's rushing yards on his final 11 carries Sunday. McCoy rushed for 59 yards on his first nine carries, including a 24-yard run midway through the second quarter on the Bills' second scoring drive. After that, he didn't have another run longer than four yards until a 7-yard run on the first play of the Bills' final possession. McCoy finished with 74 yards on 20 carries. His 3.7 yards-per-carry average equaled his lowest since Week 3 against Miami when he averaged 1.4. 14 One of the names NFL Films had been considering for the Eagles' 2015 highlight film was "Third and a Mile" because of the inordinate number of third-and-long situations they've been in. But not Sunday.

AFTER THE first 250 games, scoring across college basketball is up from 69 points per game last year to 74, due to some combination of the 30-second shot clock and increased emphasis on allowing offensive freedom of movement. Scoring is way, way up Hawk Hill. Last season, the Hawks averaged just 61.7 points per game. After blasting Buffalo, 89-67 Wednesday night at Hagan Arena, the Hawks (3-0) are averaging 81.3 points. Now, it is very early and the competition is about to get much more serious when Phil Martelli's team travels to Mohegan Sun in Connecticut to play Florida Saturday and either Purdue or Old Dominion Sunday, but, as signs go, the increased scoring is positive.

When Javier Buffalo was a freshman wide receiver at Ben Franklin High, he enjoyed playing football, but it wasn't that important to him. That is until he got a taste of something that would change his life, focus and the Public League record books. "My first touchdown," Buffalo, now a senior, said in a telephone interview. "We played Dobbins Tech midseason at 29th and Chalmers, and I remember catching a screen pass that was probably 5 yards. But I just remember the feeling of teammates running over to me, hype about scoring.

Penn State offensive line coach Herb Hand recalls when he was a graduate assistant coach at Clemson and the Tigers were shocked, 13-10, by Marshall in their 1999 season opener at home. "Tommy Bowden was our head coach," Hand said Thursday. "We had a coaches' meeting the next morning and he basically said, 'All right guys, we know where we're at now, and we know where we want to be, so let's get to work getting there.' " That's the philosophy Hand pretty much has employed with his guys since Temple dominated the Nittany Lions' offensive line in a season-opening 27-10 victory at Lincoln Financial Field.

The numbers for Christian Hackenberg's first two games of 2015 have not wowed people. Anyone who followed the Penn State quarterback's first two seasons knows he had some games when his current total of 231 passing yards would have been about an average amount for him after three quarters of a single contest. But with the slow start for the offensive line and other challenges faced by the Nittany Lions, Hackenberg seems to be pleased that he has adapted his style of play to this point while not worrying about statistics.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - It wasn't a huge leap, rather a small step for Penn State in the rain Saturday at Beaver Stadium, as the Nittany Lions attempted to get their season going in the right direction after the nightmarish season opener of a week ago. The Lions didn't gain a bunch of yards, and Buffalo wasn't exactly bottled up on its side of midfield for the entire game, either. But the positive signs - no sacks of Christian Hackenberg, a spectacular home debut by true freshman Saquon Barkley, improvement along the offensive line - were enough for encouragement in a 27-14 victory before a sopping-wet crowd of 93,065.

As he watched film on Buffalo's next opponent, Bulls coach Lance Leipold noticed that Temple "is a very good football team and I think people are going to see that throughout the year. " But Leipold's focus was on Saturday's game against Penn State, which was routed, 27-10, by the Owls. The first-year coach's concerns include an opponent wanting to prove that it's a better team than it showed last weekend, and 100,000-plus cheering fans coming out for the Nittany Lions' opener at Beaver Stadium.
