Ok, I get it, there will NEVER be another Barry Sanders.
That being said, Jaret Patterson did his best Barry impression on Saturday as he rushed for an astounding 409 yards and a record-tying 8 touchdowns during Buffalo’s 70-41 win over Kent State.
HE SCORED 8 TOUCHDOWNS 😳

Upon catching wind of Jaret’s big day, Barry himself took to Twitter to give the Patterson props.
Don't sleep on @__JP26 – he looks really good

Patterson, who is 5-9, 195 lbs. (Barry was 5-8, 203), has now rushed for 710 yards and 12 touchdowns over the past two weeks!
Great game, Jaret! Maybe we will see you in the Honolulu blue in the near future!
