09/17/17 - Oregon State came into Saturday's Pac-12 opener with an already-porous defense, and a banged-up secondary didn't help matters. A matchup with No. 21 Washington State and its relentless Air Raid attack only exacerbated the problems. Luke Falk threw for 396 yards and a career-high six touchdowns on a day filled with personal-best achievements as the Cougars rolled to a 52-23 win over the ailing Beavers at Martin Stadium in Pullman, Wash. Falk, who completed 37 of 49 attempts to nine different receivers, tied the program's single-game record on a 10-yard touchdown to Kyle Sweet to extend the lead to 42-16 with 56 seconds left in the third quarter. "(Falk) utilized a lot of players out there, looked sharp," Cougars head coach Mike Leach said. "Other than the last two series, I thought he looked very sharp."
Five of the senior's six touchdowns were caught by Tavares Martin Jr. and Isaiah Johnson-Mack. Martin Jr. led all receivers with 10 catches for a career-high 194 yards and three TDs. Johnson-Mack added nine catches for 79 yards -- both career highs -- and two scores. The Beavers (1-3, 0-1 Pac-12), who trailed by 19 at the half, pulled to within 28-16 on Ryan Nall's second touchdown, a 45-yard run midway through the third quarter. Nall finished with 118 yards on 15 carries. Falk answered and set another Washington State record on a 57-yard catch-and-run for Martin Jr.'s third touchdown, pushing the lead to 35-16 with 4:19 left in the quarter. Falk became the first Washington State quarterback to throw at least five touchdowns on eight different occasions. "He can do a lot of things," Falk said of Martin Jr. "He's got good hands, he can make people miss." - The Sports Xchange
09/17/17 - 5 record-setters from Saturday: 3. Washington State QB Luke Falk. The senior, who left the previous week's game due to injury, came back Saturday and fired a career-high six touchdown passes against a banged-up Oregon State secondary. Falk is the first WSU quarterback to have eight games with at least five touchdown throws. - The Sports Xchange
09/15/17 - Quarterback Luke Falk has had great success for No. 21 Washington State in three career wins over Oregon State, averaging more than 430 yards passing with 16 touchdowns and just two interceptions. But Falk struggled and then was injured last weekend against Boise State, and backup Tyler Hilinski led the Cougars to a stirring victory in triple-overtime. Still, Falk will be under center when Washington State (2-0) opens Pac-12 play by hosting Oregon State (1-2) on Saturday. "I thought he played slow and conservative," Cougars coach Mike Leach said about Falk last week. The senior tends to over-analyze and needs to be more decisive, Leach said. But there was no real chance that the FBS active leader in passing yardage, touchdowns and yards per game would not start Saturday. "Luke's starting and will continue to play well I am sure," Leach said this week. Leach had plenty of criticism for his entire team after the Boise State win. He was particularly rough on the offensive line, saying the Broncos were "just whipping them." "They just don't mind getting their ass kicked," Leach said of his offensive line. - AP College Football
09/13/17 - WEEK 2 STOCK REPORT: Luke Falk, QB, Washington State, rSR. (6-0, 218, 4.65, #6)...In the same game that he became Washington State's all-time passing yardage leader, Falk was largely ineffective and was even benched in the third quarter as Boise State built a three-touchdown lead. He returned the following series, but was knocked out of the game after he was knocked to the ground. Meanwhile, back-up QB Tyler Hilinski helped lead the Cougars to a comeback win, knocking off the Broncos in triple overtime, 47-44. For Falk, it was a performance that highlighted the many concerns scouts have with his transition to the next level, specifically his tendency to go through stretches of indecision. Boise State often dropped seven or eight into coverage, eliminating those large passing windows that the WSU offense usually creates, and Falk looked lost most of the game. The positives with him are clear: Falk is a touch passer with outstanding chemistry and timing with his targets. But when evaluating the quarterback the position, the most telling film to grade is when the prospect must navigate without a clean pocket and that is one area where Falk has consistently struggled. Polling people in NFL circles over the summer, Falk was widely considered the top senior quarterback prospect, but that could change very quickly. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
