All eyes were on USC and Washington State last night in a top 20 battle between two PAC-12 teams.
With all the attention going to Sam Darnold and the Trojans, the Cougars and Luke Falk stole the show with their 30-27 upset victory in Pullman.
In what was a rough day for Darnold, as the star quarterback was limited to 154 yards passing. An early interception in the second quarter set the tone for what was a very bizarre game for the possible top pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
For Luke Falk, it was the complete opposite. The former walk-on quarterback threw for 340 yards and two touchdowns while breaking the conference record for completions.
It's time to add @wsucougfb's Luke Falk to Heisman conversation. He's completing 75 % of his passes for 1,718 yds with 16 TDs and 2 int.— Chris Low (@ClowESPN) September 30, 2017
It wasn't just the offense of the Cougars, but there defense that set the tone disrupting Darnold constantly throughout the game. With a chance for a final drive to take the lead, the Cougars were able to force a fumble to seal the win.

After last night's win it's time for the college football world to take 'Wazzu' as a college football playoff contender and Luke Falk as a Heisman candidate.
