Iowa State’s Breece Hall has been electric for his entire career for the Cyclones, and he showed that again last Friday in a 48-14 win over TCU. He was the star of senior night in Ames, gobbling up 281 all-purpose yards and four touchdowns, both of which were career-highs. But his biggest moment came in the second quarter, on a 39-yard touchdown. The rushing score extended his streak of games with a rushing touchdown to 24, which is an FBS record.
Hall finished the 2021 regular season with 1,766 all-purpose yards, good for first in the Big 12 and fifth in the country. He is also in a three-way tie for first in the country, with 20 rushing touchdowns on the year.
For his outstanding 2021 season, Breece Hall has earned the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year.
According to the official Big 12 website, Breece Hall is the fourth player to earn two Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year honors and the third to do it in consecutive years.
He has been a key piece of the Cyclones’ success the past three seasons and has helped Iowa State to the best stretch of football in school history on Matt Campbell.
Iowa State is bowl eligible and will find out where it is headed this Sunday during the bowl selection process. Most projections have Hall and the Cyclones landing in the Cheeze-It Bowl in Orlando, Florida, or the Texas Bowl, in Houston.
Hall, a junior, is widely expected to declare for the 2022 NFL draft.
