WSU looks like 'Palouse Posse' as it takes a 12-3 lead at the intermission against No. 8 Stanford at Martin Stadium
Both turnovers occurred during the first quarter. Defensive lineman Destiny Vaeao forced quarterback Kevin Hogan's fumble, which was recovered by safety Shalom Luani. And on Stanford's ensuing possession, Parker Henry intercepted Hogan at the Cardinal 31-yard line.
But only the latter turnover resulted in points on a 46-yard field goal by Erik Powell as the Cougars, which produced negative-4 yards of offense during the first quarter, struggled early.
Falk, who completed 13 of 26 passes for 145 yards, led 13- and 8-play scoring drives that faltered in the red zone during the second quarter. But Powell extended WSU's lead to 9-3 on 23- and 47-yard field goals. He also added a 28-yard field goal to end the first half.
Stanford's lone score came on a 32-yard field goal by Conrad Ukropina during its opening drive.
