SAN FRANCISCO - For the third time this season and fourth in 12 career starts, Washington State sophomore quarterback Luke Falk has been named the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week.

Falk threw for 497 yards, completing 36-of-55 passes and five touchdowns to four different receivers with one interception in Washington State's come-from-behind, 38-24 win over Arizona State. After a slow first half, Falk completed 20-of-27 passes for 349 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in the second half. All four touchdown drives in the second half were more than 70-yard drives. In the fourth quarter alone, Falk completed 11-of-26 passing for 238 yards and three touchdowns, helping the Cougars to their third come-from-behind win of the season as they trailed 21-17 entering the final quarter.

Falk's passing yardage was the third-highest of a Pac-12 quarterback this season, and he owns the top two marks as well. This is Falk's third Conference weekly honor of the season, also earning the accolade on Sept. 14 and Oct. 26.

Washington State junior linebacker Parker Henry was nominated for Defensive Player of the Week.
