  11/27/20 - Charlie KolarrJr/2022, Iowa State, 6-5, 257 (DS#4 TE) + More +

  Breece Hall scored on a 3-yard run with 1:25 remaining, and No. 15 Iowa State held off last-minute drive by Sam Ehlinger and No. 20 Texas to remain in first place in the Big 12 with a 23-20 victory Friday. After Iowa State sacked Ehlinger on third down, Texas’ Cameron Dicker barely missed left with a 58-yard field goal attempt as time expired. The Cyclones (7-2, 7-1) have almost locked up a spot in the Big 12 championship game for the first time. Hall gained 91 yards on 20 carries, his first game under 100 this season, but had 30 on the final 69-yard touchdown drive. Quarterback Brock Purdy connected with tight ends Charlie Kolar and Dylan Soehner for the other 39 yards. Iowa State trailed 20-16 early in the fourth quarter after bad two-play sequence for Texas (5-3, 4-3) helped the Cyclones get a field goal by Connor Assalley. Purdy completed 25 of 36 for 312 yards and one touchdown. Kolar made six receptions for 131. - AP College Football

  11/24/20 - Mike RoseJr/2022, Iowa State, 6-2, 245 (DS#10 OLB) + More +

  Seven tackles. A sack. Three tackles for loss. A quarterback hurry, and oh by the way, his fourth interception during this wonderful season. It doesn't get much better than that. I've been bullish about Michael, really, from the TCU game on," coach Matt Campbell said Saturday night. "I just believe that Michael is one of the best defensive players that I've had the opportunity to coach. The consistency that he has played with - I don't know that there's someone that's playing as well as what he has consistently played for the entirety of the year. I'm obviously not sitting there watching everybody play college football, but I sure know what he's meant to this program and to this team. He's as special as I've ever been around, and maybe as special as I've seen."

Rose led a defense that pitched its first shutout since 45-0 against Kansas in 2017. He was all over the field with an A.J. Klein-like performance. He leads the Big 12 in interceptions. He's among the leaders in tackles, but there's more. He spoiled the Wildcats' first drive of the second half, with a speedy quarterback chase down on third down. Which play in particular caught Campbell's eye? All of them, but it goes beyond that. "That's what I love about Mike," Campbell said after the game. "You're going to go back and watch the tape, and I don't know there's a play that sticks out in a negative way. He had an interception. He makes plays on the jet sweep. "To me, it's the consistency that he's playing with. I don't know if there's anybody else that's played as consistently as he has from the start of the season to where he is right now. "That takes a really special human, and that takes a really special sacrifice. I don't know if anybody's worked harder. I don't know if anybody has reached his full potential more than what I've seen from Michael." - Des Moines Register

  11/21/20 - Brock PurdyJr/2022, Iowa State, 6-1, 212 (DS#9 QB) + More +

  Brock Purdy passed for 236 yards and three touchdowns and No. 17 Iowa State beat Kansas State 45-0 on Saturday for its most lopsided win over the Wildcats in 77 years. Iowa State (6-2) improved to 6-1 in the Big 12, matching the school record for conference wins. The Cyclones hadn't had such a wide winning margin against the Wildcats since they beat them 48-0 in 1943. It was their biggest win over a Big 12 opponent since beating Kansas 45-0 three years ago. Kansas State (4-4, 4-3), which won 11 of the previous 12 meetings, started to unravel after failing to score on an early first-and-goal from the 3.

Purdy completed 10 of his first 12 passes for 156 yards to six receivers and all three of his touchdowns. Breece Hall was Iowa State's leading rusher with 135 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries. Hall ran for touchdowns of 33 and 21 yards as the Cyclones pushed the lead to 35-0 before half. Kansas State sputtered with quarterback Will Howard, who completed just three of his first 9 attempts and was replaced after throwing an interception late in the second quarter. Purdy, who finished 16 for 20, also ran seven times for 59 yards. Iowa State outgained the Wildcats 539-149. The Wildcats were missing starting linebackers Justin Hughes and Elijah Sullivan for undisclosed reasons. - Iowa State/AP College Football

  NOV 9 BIG 12 DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Mike Rose, LB, Jr., Iowa State,...Rose tied his career high with 11 tackles, including seven solo stops, in the come-from-behind win over Baylor. He was credited with two QB hurries and had 1.5 TFL. Rose saved the best for last, picking off a Charlie Brewer pass in the end zone with under a minute left to secure the victory for the Cyclones. It was his Big 12-leading third interception of the season. - Big 12 Football

  The conversation about Breece Hall's status as a Heisman contender is probably over - he is one. He may not be the favorite, but after rushing for two touchdowns and 133 yards, which put him over 1,000 for the season, while also catching two passes for 27 yards and a touchdown, he should be included in just about every discussion of what players might be invited (virtually) as finalists to New York City next month.

The sophomore, who entered the game leading the country in per-game rushing yards not only has fantastic numbers on the season, but he's been doing it in consistent fashion. He's rushed for over 100 yards in every game this season. That's what makes his trajectory for the final three regular-season games easier to predict - all he does is put up numbers. Hall seems likely to continue on that path, but to get that finalist invite, Iowa State will probably need to stay on the path it hopes to walk - which leads to Arlington and the Big 12 title game. - Des Moines Register

  Brock Purdy threw three touchdown passes in the second half after throwing three interceptions in the first, and No. 17 Iowa State came from behind to beat Baylor 38-31 Saturday night. The Cyclones (5-2) are 5-1 in conference play for the first time in the program's 128-year history and are first in the Big 12 by a half-game. Breece Hall went over 100 yards rushing for the seventh straight game, finishing with 133 and two touchdowns. He also caught a TD pass. The Cyclones won for the first time since 2012 when committing four turnovers. Baylor scored its first 24 points off Iowa State turnovers, the last coming when Greg Eisworth muffed a punt. Iowa State linebacker Mike Rose sealed the victory when he intercepted Charlie Brewer's pass in the end zone with 57 seconds left. Purdy was intercepted on Iowa State's first two possessions, and Baylor (1-4, 1-4 Big 12) turned them into points. Jalen Pitre's 30-yard interception return put the Bears ahead 21-7. - AP College Football

  When Iowa State running back Breece Hall discusses his role, he first mentions his blocking in pass protection, being a dependable check-down receiver and communicating with teammates. Everybody else wants to talk about what he does as a ball carrier. Hall is averaging 150.2 yards per game and will go into the 17th-ranked Cyclones' home game against Baylor on Saturday night as the nation's leading rusher among players who have appeared in a minimum of three games. The sophomore from Wichita, Kansas, has gone over 100 yards in all six games, his four runs of at least 50 yards are most in the country and his 11 rushing touchdowns rank second.

"I wouldn't say it's a surprise," Hall said recently. "But I've been happy with some of the results and how our team has been playing a little bit." The Cyclones (4-2, 4-1) are in a three-way tie for first in the Big 12 and looking to reach the conference championship game for the first time. Hall emerged at midseason as a freshman last year and has gone for 100 yards in 10 of his 14 starts. "Do I think Breece is an elite football player? I do. Do I think he can continue to grow and get better? I do," coach Matt Campbell said. "There's nobody else I'd rather play with than Breece." - Fresno Bee

  It took until the postgame Zoom conference before Breece Hall was stopped cold. He was without an answer when asked if he knew who was Iowa State's last football player with 100-plus rushing yards in six consecutive games. When told it was Darren Davis, of the famous Davis family, in 1999, he shook his head, then proceeded into a dissertation about why he's rushed for 185 yards on consecutive Saturdays. "It's a testament not only for me but the offense," he said after the No. 22 Cyclones overwhelmed winless Kansas 52-22 Saturday. "Everybody's doing a good job blocking. It's really a team achievement, not an individual thing. Running the ball - we've been successful these last two games. It's been fun." Hall enters next Saturday's game against Baylor at Jack Trice Stadium with 801 rushing yards on 137 carries. He entered Saturday's game as the nation's top rusher and he topped the Big 12, and you know what? He's not performing at his best.

That's the word from Matt Campbell, who won't be totally satisfied until his Cyclones not just play in the Big 12 Conference title game but wins the Big 12 title game. "He's running the ball outstanding," Campbell said after Saturday's 30-point win. "Last week, there were some other things, as well as he ran the ball, that I really challenged him to be better in, and he did a really good job working on those things." Hall isn't the best player to carry an Iowa State football. No one will do what Troy Davis did, although his brother, Darren, gave it a darn good shot. That's just an observation, of course. "The statistics are one thing," Campbell said. "I want our guys to become the best version of themselves as they can be. Breece still has that in there. As great as a player he is, there's still more out there. There's still another level. "I look forward watching for that to continue to grow and develop. The expectations continue to grow, and my expectations are really high." - Ames Tribune

  Breece Hall matched a career high with 185 yards rushing and two touchdowns, Brock Purdy threw two TD passes and had another score on the ground and No. 23 Iowa State coasted to a 52-22 victory over winless Kansas on Saturday. Purdy finished with 239 yards passing and Kene Nwangwu also hit the end zone for the Cyclones (4-2, 4-1 Big 12), who bounced back from a tough loss to No. 6 Oklahoma State by beating the Jayhawks for the sixth straight time. The only bright spot for Kansas (0-6, 0-5) came on a 100-yard kickoff return by Kenny Logan in the second half.

Otherwise, quarterback Jalon Daniels and the rest of the offense was woefully inept, the defense gave up gobs of yards on the ground and the special teams missed a short field goal and nearly surrendered a kick-return touchdown. Daniels was just 16 of 29 for 165 yards with an interception and a touchdown run. The first three TDs of the game were scored into a brisk wind out of the south, but the Cyclones finally took control going the other way at the end of the first half. They converted four consecutive third downs, three of them through the air, and the last a short touchdown toss from Purdy to Charlie Kolar that made it 20-7 at the break. Hall already had 89 yards rushing by that point. Kansas had just 15 yards rushing as a team. - Iowa State/AP College Football

  OCT 26 BIG 12 CO-OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Breece Hall, RB, So., Iowa State,...Hall rushed for a career-high 185 yards on 20 carries versus Oklahoma State. It was his fifth-straight 100-yard game to tie for the third-longest streak in ISU history. He had runs of 66 and 70 yards. His 66-yard rush was his ninth TD of the season. - Big 12 Football

  Preseason All-American tight end Charlie Kolar already has one personal victory under his belt with an "extra-special" win over Oklahoma, the university located in his home town that didn't offer him a scholarship. The Cowboys did offer Kolar, but not until after he was already committed to Campbell's program. "That's a hard decision when a school in your home state comes in on you in the recruiting process," Campbell said. "I think it says a lot about who Charlie is. At that time, Charlie had a brother that was at Oklahoma State as well, so I know there was personal meaning toward getting that scholarship offer. It takes a lot of courage to kind of leave home and stay committed to us. "I really appreciate his courage. Charlie comes from a great family with great character. We're really grateful that he did make that decision because he's certainly been a big pillar of us continuing to grow as a program." Kolar, a junior, has 12 catches for 134 yards and a touchdown since returning from an injury that kept him out of Iowa State's opener. - Ames Tribune

  Brock Purdy first burst on to the scene for Iowa State in leading the Cyclones to victory as a backup against Oklahoma State in Stillwater back in 2018. Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy's admiration for the Iowa State signal-caller has only grown since. "I think they've got a future NFL quarterback," Gundy said Monday. Purdy is coming off his best game of the year, throwing for 302 yards and two touchdowns while also rushing for 42 yards in a win over Texas Tech. For the season, Purdy is completing 62.4% of his passes and has thrown for 912 yards, four touchdowns and one interception. Gundy's praise for the Cyclones wasn't limited to just Purdy, though. "I think Iowa State is a really good football team," Gundy said. "I think they're well-coached. - Des Moines Register

  Breece Hall came into the game averaging 132 yards rushing and two touchdowns per game. Against Texas Tech, the Iowa State sophomore carried 27 times for 135 yards and two TDs. "From the view on the sideline, I can tell you it seemed like we weren't hitting him until he was in the second level," Wells said, "which tells me their offensive line did a nice job of blocking up front, getting up to second-level linebackers. And it seemed like he was always running downhill today." In the previous three games this season, Hall ran for 103 yards and a touchdown against Louisiana-Lafayette, 154 yards and three TDs at TCU and for 139 yards and two TDs versus Oklahoma. - Lubbock Avalanche Journal

  Breece Hall is magical. If the Big 12's top rusher didn't make a statement with 154 rushing yards against Oklahoma, he did it with his fourth 100-yard rushing game in a row Saturday. The sophomore had 108 yards in the first half of the ABC-televised game and 135 for the game, as Kene Nwangwu got most of the second-half carries. Hall was almost unstoppable running through the line. He ran well around the end. He leaped over silly-looking tacklers. If there's something he can't do, then please inform me. - Des Moines Register
