The Washington State quarterback threw five touchdown passes in a 45-42 win at Arizona.

The Walter Camp Football Foundation has announced that Washington State quarterback Luke Falk is the organization's Offensive Player of the Week after the quarterback led the Cougars to a 45-42 win at Arizona on Saturday.

Falk completed 47 of 62 passes for 514 yards and five touchdowns. He becomes the Cougar player to win the honor since 2004. The redshirt sophomore is third in the NCAA in both passing yards (2,885) and touchdowns (26) and has thrown just four interceptions.

Georgia Tech defensive back Jamal Golden was named the Defensive Player of the Week after recording nine tackles and an interception in a win over No. 9 Florida State.
