Throughout the college football season, there’s at least several teams — who score at least seven or eight touchdowns in a game. However, before Saturday night, it was rare for a player to do that by himself.,

Arizona State running back Kalen Ballage has done exactly that against the Texas Tech Red Raiders. Kliff Kingsbury — the Red Raiders head coach — is likely confused on how to stop Ballage since nothing he or his coaching staff is doing is working.

Ballage is performing his magic on Fox Sports 1 at the moment from Sun Devil Stadium. He broke the school-record when he scored his sixth touchdown.

The eight touchdowns by Ballage is a new Pac-12 Conference record. While it’s a new conference mark, it ties an NCAA record.

He has scored all of his touchdowns since the second quarter. It began when he scored a one-yard touchdown at 13:17 in the second.

All of his scores have come on the ground. While the first seven have been from 10-yards or fewer, his eighth touchdown was for 75-yards, which increased the Sun Devils lead to 65-48.

 

Ballage’s record-tying performance ties former Illinois Fighting Illini back Howard Griffith, who had eight touchdowns in a game in 1990.
