The Pac-12 gave Washington State some good news and some potentially bad news, depending on how you feel about late kickoffs.

The good news is that Luke Falk was named the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week for the third time this season, and the fourth time in just 12 career starts. Falk completed 36 of 55 passes for 497 yards against Arizona State, throwing five touchdown passes and one interception.

The bad news is that WSU's Nov. 21 game against Colorado is scheduled to kick off at 7:45 p.m., making for a pretty cold game under the lights. But even that comes with a silver lining: The game will be televised on ESPN2, giving the Cougars five consecutive games on national television to end the regular season.
