There are 48 days until college football returns. Today we remember Arizona St’s RB Kalen Ballage’s record-tying, 8 touchdown, 48-pt performance.

In 2016, when Patrick Mahomes and Texas Tech visited Arizona St, everyone expected fireworks. However, it was Sun Devils RB Kalen Ballage that provided the biggest spark of them all. In a game that featured 123 total points, a record-tying 48 of them came on Ballage’s 8 touchdowns. He racked up 185 all-purpose yards (137 rush yds, 48 rec yds) to go along with the 8 touchdowns. Hopefully, you started him on your fantasy team that night.

Ballage’s 48 points tied the NCAA record for most points in a game. He tied the record set by Illinois FB Howard Griffith in 1990 vs Southern Illinois.
