Kalen Ballage is efficient.

The Arizona State running back only received 15 touches during Arizona State’s 68-55 win over Texas Tech on Saturday night, but he sure made the most of them by finding the end zone eight times.

Yes, that’s right, he scored eight touchdowns. Seven rushing and one receiving, just for some variety.

He scored 53 percent of the time he touched the dang ball.

Ballage’s eight touchdowns are a new Pac-12 single-game record, and he’s only the sixth player in FBS history to score eight touchdowns in one game. Ballage joined Western Kentucky QB Brandon Doughty (2014), Wyoming QB Brett Smith (2013), Navy QB Keenan Reynolds (2013), Louisville QB Lamar Jackson (2016) and Illinois RB Howard Griffith (1990), who first set the record.

Only Griffith took to Twitter to congratulate him, however.
