Hall's streak began in Week 1 of the 2020 season when he scored a rushing touchdown against Louisiana-Lafayette. He finished his sophomore campaign with 279 carries for 1,572 yards and 21 touchdowns in addition to 23 catches for 180 yards and two scores. 

The last time he failed to score a touchdown was December 2019, when the Cyclones lost to Notre Dame in the Camping World Bowl.

Iowa State head coach Matt Campbell was asked about Hall's efficiency earlier in the week and lauded him for his consistency, per 247Sports

"To me the word is consistency for Breece. What you've seen from Breece really from that West Virginia game his freshman year to every game he's played, there's a real sense of professionalism and consistency that he brings to how he attacks the sport. And that part has allowed our football team to really be able to use him in the most critical moments. You talk scoring, scoring, those are critical moments. And Breece has always been ready for the moment and has done a great job of continuing to grow his craft and what he's about. But man, there's a lot of consistency about Breece Hall, in terms of winning moments, and he's done a great job of that."

Hall finished last season in the top 10 in the FBS in rushing yards per game and is top-10 this campaign. In June, Michael Renner of Pro Football Focus ranked him as the top prospect at the position for the 2022 NFL draft.
