PULLMAN – Washington State senior quarterback Luke Falk continued his climb up the Pac-12 Conference record book.

Falk moved to the top of the career completions list in Friday night’s showdown against USC at Martin Stadium. He surpassed former Oregon State standout Sean Mannion’s 1,187 completions from 2011-14.

Falk broke the record when he hit Tavares Martin Jr. for 15 yards midway through the second quarter.

Falk climbed into third place in Pac-12 career total offense. He moved past former Cal quarterback Jared Goff (12,086 yards from 2013-15) and ex-USC Trojan Matt Barkley (12,214 from 2009-2012).

Falk is now tied for second in Pac-12 career touchdown passes. He’s at 105, tied with Marcus Mariota (Oregon, 2012-14). Barkley holds down the top spot with 116.
