Luke Falk

The quarterback was on point from the start and masterful when it counted, most notably on the Cougars’ go-ahead 94-yard drive in the fourth quarter. Oh, and Falk also set the Pac-12 career passing yard record in his final game at Martin Stadium. Enough said.

Frankie Luvu

The American Samoan linebacker had a memorable Senior Day, notching his first career interception to seal the win in the final seconds.

Justus Rogers

The redshirt freshman linebacker spent more time in the Stanford backfield than any other Coug, and that’s saying something. Rogers mustered a team-high 2.5 tackles-for-loss, part of WSU’s 11.5 TFLs. In the second quarter, he took down Stanford QB K.J. Costello for his first career sack.
