In 2018, Barkley was selected to the Pro Bowl as a rookie. Barkley was also selected as the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year after setting a record for most receptions by a rookie running back in a season. Barkley was a consensus All-American and the Paul Hornung Award winner in 2017 while at Penn State.
The all-time series between Penn State and Auburn is tied at 1. The last meeting was a 13-9 Auburn victory in 2003 at the Capital One Bowl.
