PULLMAN – Washington State quarterback Luke Falk may say he is “not really focused on individual stats or anything like that” but the Cougars sure put up some impressive ones – and even broke a few records – during their 69-7 win over Arizona on Saturday. So, we thought we would pass them along anyways.

  • Falk’s four touchdown passes give him 79 for his career. He is now No. 2 in school history, having passed Alex Brink.
  • Gabe Marks has made a catch in 24 consecutive games and has 288 in his career, behind only Colorado’s Nelson Spruce (294) in Pac-12 history.
  • WSU’s team completion percentage of 90.3 (47-of-52) is an NCAA FBS record for teams with 30 or more completions.
  • WSU’s 24 first-quarter points were the most in an opening quarter since putting up 28 against the Wildcats in Tucson in 2001.
  • WSU’s seven-game winning streak is its longest since 2002.
  • River Cracraft’s 209 career catches rank No. 2 in school history behind Marks.
