Penn State football was a defensive team first again in 2015, but the offense was not without outstanding performers. 

Running back Saquon Barkley was named to the All-Big Ten second team this week by both the coaches and the media. 

Receiver Chris Godwin was a second-team pick by the media and a third-team pick by the coaches while receiver DaeSean Hamilton received honorable mention from the media. 

Barkley finished fourth in the Big Ten in rushing yards with 100.7 per game while Godwin was second in the conference in receiving yards per game at 80.7. 

Godwin and Hamilton are sophomores while Barkley is a freshman who broke D.J. Dozier's freshman school record of 1,002 rushing yards by five yards. 

Hamilton was a second-team all-league pick last year, but Godwin turned out to be Christian Hackenberg's go-to receiver this year, hauling in 63 passes, including five for touchdowns.
