IRVING, Texas (Release/CIK) - Iowa State true freshman running back Breece Hall was honored by the Big 12 as its Co-Newcomer of the Week after his performance vs. West Virginia.

A native of Wichita, Hall had a breakout game vs. the Mountaineers in Morgantown, helping the Cyclones record a 38-14 victory.

Hall rushed for a career-high 132 yards on 26 carries and found the end zone three times in the win. Hall had TD rushes of 1, 1 and 12 yards and tallied a long rush of 18 yards. He averaged 5.1 yards per carry.

Hall's three rushing TDs broke Iowa State's record for a freshman and he is one of four FBS true freshmen to record a three-TD game this season. His 132-yard performance is the seventh-best single-game total by a FBS true freshman this season.

Hall came to Iowa State after a banner career with the Wichita Northwest Grizzlies. The four-star recruit was the second ranked player in the state of Kansas following a senior campaign that saw him rush for 2,127 yards and 29 touchdowns, while also hitting nearly 600 receiving yards and 8 more scores through the air.
