Saquon Barkley has been named a First-Team All-American by the Associated Press as an all-purpose player.

But that's not all.

On Sunday night the Nittany Lions gathered for their annual team banquet to hand out awards and honors to wrap-up the regular season and a 10-2 record heading into the Fiesta Bowl.

Winner of the Big Ten’s Offensive Player of the Year, Running Back of the Year, Kick Return Specialist of the Year and Silver Football awards, Barkley was selected the Nittany Lions’ Most Valuable Player. A first-team All-Big Ten honoree, safety Marcus Allen was honored as the Most Valuable Defensive Player, while the Nittany Lions’ record-setting quarterback and All-Big Ten second team honoree Trace McSorley was selected Penn State’s Most Valuable Offensive Player.
