Iowa State sophomore running back Breece Hall was honored by the Big 12 Conference for his performance vs. Oklahoma State on Saturday, earning Co-Offensive Player of the Week accolades from the league office.

It was the second weekly award for Hall this season.

A native of Wichita, Kan., Hall continued his push for national awards by rushing for a career-high 185 yards vs. one of the top defenses in the nation at No. 6 Oklahoma State.

Hall averaged 9.2 yards per carry and galloped for a 66-yard touchdown run, his ninth rushing touchdown of the season to rank third in the nation. Hall also had a 70-yard run and caught four passes in the contest.

Hall’s numbers in 2020 solidify himself as one of the elite rushers nationally. He leads all NCAA players in yards per game (143.2), 100-yard rushing games (5) and 65+ yard runs (3). His streak of five-straight 100-yard rushing efforts ties for the third-best string in school history.

Hall is averaging 6.3 yards per carry on the year, which is on pace to break ISU’s single-season school mark.
