Falk Leads Washington State To 38-24 Win Over Arizona State
PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) - Luke Falk threw for 497 yards and five touchdowns as Washington State beat Arizona State 38-24 Saturday to become bowl-eligible for the second time in coach Mike Leach's four years with the program.
Dom Williams caught six passes for 123 yards and two touchdowns for Washington State (6-3, 4-2 Pac-12), which overcame a 14-0 first quarter deficit.
Arizona State (4-5, 2-4) scored a touchdown on each of its first two possessions, then was held to one more the rest of the game. It was the Sun Devils' third consecutive loss.
Washington State, which lost on a last-second missed field goal last week against No. 9 Stanford, managed to protect Falk from one of the best pass rushes in the Pac-12. He completed 36 of 55 passes, with one interception, and was sacked three times.
Arizona State quarterback Mike Bercovici completed 27 of 44 passes for 229 yards.
