WSU's Luke Falk: Call him The Road Warrior

THAT MAKES TWO. And might as well just call him The Road Warrior. Washington State quarterback Luke Falk was named the Pac-12 offensive player of the week on Monday. Falk has started but five games in his WSU career -- and he already has his second conference player of the week award.

Luke Falk was named the Pac-12's offensive player of the week last year in his first career start at Oregon State. On Monday, his second honor also came on a road performance.

Falk completed 47-of-66 passes in throwing for 478 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions in Washington State's 37-34 win at Rutgers on Saturday.

Falk led WSU on a 10-play, 90-yard drive in 1:31, capped by an 8-yard touchdown pass to River Cracraft with 13 seconds remaining.

Falk completed his first 13 passes and ended the first half 24-of-29 for 201 yards.

Falk’s 478 yards are the second-most of his career (ASU) and the third time in five career starts he has eclipsed the 400-yard mark.

The win marked WSU’s first victory against a Big Ten school since defeating Purdue in the 2001 Sun Bowl, and first win in the Eastern Time Zone since 1996.
